The fawns are fascinated by the enchanted pool in this beautiful corner of the garden that’s protected by the ruined folly. While one rests, the other looks bravely into the circle of animated water.

Everything stops for tea

with 3 comments

 

April Syndicate Sunday has some wonderful bargains you won’t want to miss. Harvest Moon’s offer is for an English style cottage surrounded by a beautiful cottage garden. It contains typical flowers such as hollyhocks, petunia and Canterbury bells and you even get butterflies!

The cottage garden is one that country folks aspire to but despite its carefree appearance, it’s artfully arranged and takes a lot of looking after. Nearly every garden will have its resident robins who will enthusiastically defend their territories and clear up a lot of garden pests in the process. There will also be some sort of sitting area so the fortunate residents can take tea in the afternoons/mornings/whenever. Yes, the English are addicted to their tea and cakes, it’s such a pleasant ritual though!

The furniture set I added to the scene really matches the cottage so well, it’d be a shame not to purchase both of them. Although the Adirondack style is more NE New York, it’s been adopted all over and I notice that my RL neighbours have just this sort of set they keep in their garden shed over winter and break out in the spring. It’s surprisingly adaptable. There are 3 sets available by [CIRCA] in different woods.

Syndicate Sunday is a mainstore discount shopping event that runs once a month. This month it’s on from April 7th to April 14th. All items are only L$69 each! Check out the website for more details.

Here’s some more pithy proverbs on the subject of gardening.

Blooming Marvellous

with 4 comments

“Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy pear tree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.” – Gerard Manley Hopkins

Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889) is considered to be one of the greatest poets of the Victorian era. However, because his style was so radically different from that of his contemporaries, his best poems were not accepted for publication during his lifetime, and his achievement was not fully recognized until after World War I.

Garden Meditation

leave a comment »

 

It’s a post packed full of bargain goodness today, and it’s just in time for your Spring landscaping! The little chaps here are enjoying a morning meditation in the garden before anybody’s about.

A Yearning for Home

leave a comment »

 

The Lauren Valley original MESH build is the newest house by Designer Rob Galland of Galland Homes, and it’s a beauty. It features a Colonial design and has plenty of room for family living. Both floors have large and open areas and the first floor is accentuated by the feature wood sliding doors. The downstairs living room could be used as two different spaces- a living room and a den for example. This room leads to what could be a kitchen, dining area, and a sun room for an office or eating space. There is a space under the stairs for a powder room or closet – your choice. The stairs lead to a beautiful landing which takes you either into the huge master suite or the second bedroom. Finally, through the French doors in the kitchen area, you will find an expansive patio for outdoor living enjoyment. So… plenty of decorating possibilities. There’s also a snow roof package and if you’re on a winter sim, you won’t miss out there. Find the Lauren Valley at this month’s Edition of FaMESHed.

Colonial architecture is based on a yearning for the colonists’ home country. The consequent buildings and settlements combine the best aspects of the mother country and the new land, creating hybrid designs. Examples of these styles in the USA include Dutch Colonial and Dutch Revival, French Colonial, from American Colonial there’s Federal, First Period and Georgian architecture, and Spanish Colonial particularly in the Caribbean and South America. Portuguese Colonial (in South America) and British Colonial architecture (in North America and Canada) is also prevalent.

Posh Parakeets

with 9 comments

 

These little parakeets think they are Posh with a capital ‘P’  as they hang out at the Manor! Of course they reckon the owner has put in the handy fencing and water feature especially for them so they can take their morning bath and dry off afterwards 🙂

Featuring the “Manor Fence Set” by unKindness (my new Sponsor – yaaaay!!), currently at the August round of FaMESHed.  This lovely set has Materials enabled to great effect, the slightly rusty railings, shiny fleur-de-lis decoration and weathered stone pillars are a delight.

HEXtraordinary have created the parakeets from their gacha “Parakeet Pals”, and that’s currently at the Gacha Garden Event.  If you ask me, they look like budgerigars so if you’re in my part of the country, we call those spugs. Anyway, there’s lots of differently coloured spugs in the gacha plus a nice cage for them or else they have a posh twig stand to sit on.  Those are Rares and I didn’t get anything to speak of expect for lots and lots of spugs. However, as you can see they would much rather be outside! It is extreme cuteness the way they flap their wings during the animation cycle. In the picture above, the snowy one was flapping at the time having just taken a dip in the “Soothing Fountain” by .peaches. (Deco(c)rate) and it’s anything but Zen with all the tweeting, flapping and squawking when one of them has spent too long in the bathing bowls.

Here’s the scene repeated in a warmer Windlight setting.  That beautiful tree is by Little Branch and it’s a sweet chestnut, that was also in the Deco(c)rate subscription box which is well worth getting, even at the non-discounted price.

I think the owner of the Manor needs to mow the lawn soon, it’s a weekend gardening job 🙂
