The Birds and the Bees

with 8 comments

“Sowing the Seeds
The birds and the bees
My girlfriend and me in love
Open hearts – feel about it
Open minds – think about it
Time to eat all your words
Swallow your pride
Open your eyes
High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man
And the lovetrain rides from coast to coast
Every minute of every hour – ” I Love a Sunflower ”
And I believe in lovepower, Love power, LOVEPOWER !!!”

Water Garden

with 3 comments

 

A new round of The Boardwalk Event has just started and it runs for a month so there’s plenty of time to wander around and check out all the great products.

This round Designer, Victor Newchurch, has made us the, “Moment of Zen Set” which includes a picture called, “Scenes from The Tale of Genji”. This turns out to refer to an 11th century masterpiece often called the world’s first novel and it’s about the art of seduction. Very little is alluded to in a gross way but things are suggested gently… what counts is the art and the poetry. It’s rather fascinating on the whole and if you’re interested in this period of history,  there’s a short article here.

In view of all this, I decided to make a water garden which can be a rather poetic and sensual place to experience on a sultry evening with a bottle of wine and a good book when the kids have been packed off to bed!

Cottage Garden

with 8 comments

 

As I’ve said before, it’s not easy to create an English Cottage garden virtually and make it look realistic, this is the best I’ve done so far. It has that seemingly carefree look (which is anything but) where you’ve just scattered wild flower and grass seeds at the beginning of the season, together with a few well chosen shrubs… and it’s all come to fruition.

The beautiful stone cottage is by Galland Homes and you’ll find it at the 7th Anniversary edition of FaMESHed, don’t forget to pick up all the gifts when you visit! Stonehill Cottage has a deep stone base so will be able to go into various hilly landscapes in addition to flat ground as here. Downstairs is an open floor set-up with a welcoming old style stone fireplace with chimney going up the side of the house. There’s wooden beams, plaster walls, and stairs that lead up to an open plan bedroom. The cottage would be suitable in a modern country style community and could also double as a house or tavern within a role-play setting. Well worth checking out the DEMO at FaMESHed.

The garden wall and gate are just perfect for the stone cottage and these are quite the nicest landscaping pieces I’ve seen in this genre so far this year, they are by Serenity Style. Also featuring Raindale’s brilliant Riverbreak gacha for 6º Republic and although I’ve put this in the garden it could go anywhere by a river, in a forest or wherever you want it.

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.

Blooming Marvellous

“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.
