Thanks to Claire for sending: “I walked past the Botanic Gardens, which have been closed since March, and was surprised to find a team installing the traditional Christmas display of model buildings built from bark inside the east wing. I talked to an installer briefly,

and she says there will be models but no trains, and that the plan is to open the paned glass doors and fill them with panels of plexiglass so that people can more easily walk past and admire the display from outside. No entrance will be permitted.”
