Big Ideas – Bricks & Blooms Garden Centre

If there is one thing us Brits like more than a cup of tea and scone, it’s a trip to the garden centre.

Which leads me nicely to this delightful new LEGO Ideas project by John Cramp aka ‘Bricked1980’ creator of another LEGO® Ideas project The Old Workhorse Traction Engine. The Bricks & Blooms Garden Centre is a...

However now the Old Workhorse Traction Engine has been built with actual LEGO bricks and it’s even more impressive. So much so it even made the front page of...
