Thanks for the comments everyone!
Great detailed build, a bit too colourful compared to anything I have seen in any image of Hobbiton though
I can definetly see that. For me it was a design decision. With the bricks I have, I wasn't liking how plain green it was and I didn't have enough dark green plants to contrast and accent the lighter green. A lot of mocs I have seen in the past (shire) just wash out with so much of the same color and I like to use color to accent details.
Also I used dozens of reference pictures and I found a few that did have some flowers that had that overhang effect and really liked it:http://heirsofdurin.files.wordpress.com ... obilbo.jpghttp://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/ ... 00-424.jpghttp://declanmalonephotography.files.wo ... bagend.jpg
