The Wild Garden

The Happy Hobby Gardener Pt. 1


I like doing yard work. Cutting grass, trimming trees, moving rocks. I haven’t done much planting though, but I suspect I might like that too if I ever get a garden that’s my own. Then I’d want a greenhouse like this one from CHEZ MOI; with a mixture of glass and bricks it’s a fantastic piece of garden decor all on its own and with the lean-to shed I’d have everything I need to be a happy hobby gardener. The cute little shed in this picture is made by HJM Designs. It comes with exterior and interior decor, 8 single animations, prop rezzer, and there’s a texture change menu upon Touch. You can find both the greenhouse and the shed in their respective mainstores (slurls below). I’m showing you the inside of the shed in this post and tomorrow, or later today depending on where you are in the world, I’ll have another post showing you the inside of the greenhouse.

Coastal Sunset

I think I’m going to stay on the coast for the duration of the summer. It’s really nice, not too hot, and take a look at this cute little float house I found today by Never Totally Dead! Decorated with hanging wall planters by HJM Designs and interior decor by Nutmeg (I’ll show you a picture of that later in a post by itself).
The Float House comes with a chair containing single sits (the chair is unlinked so you can move it around) and the house has a resizer menu on touch. I’m showing the original size, which has a Land Impact of 32.
HJM Designs have made 5 different versions of The Bucket Wall Planters, I’ve used the Mixed Flowers and the Hanging Plant. The planters also come with an animated butterfly or bee, you turn the animation on or off by touching them. You can also change the texture of the wood by touching that; light or dark versions.

Meditation – Home and Garden Design 2019

Heart Mandala tapestry by LozMac and Adagio Indoor Water Fountain by HJM Designs

Need a peaceful place to quiet your mind and find your center? You can create this space in your own home and using only a few items. A comfortable pillow to sit on, incense, candles and an indoor water fountain to set the mood. The Mandala symbolizes the universe and looks really good when decorating your spiritual space. HJM Designs made the water fountain and LozMac made the mandala tapestry you see in this picture and you can find them both at the Home & Garden Expo which is open until April 7th.

Dream, Wish, Do – Home and Garden Design 2019

A creative workspace. Dog just wants the macarons.

Did you visit the Home & Garden Expo yet? I thought I’d move inside and show you some furniture and decor today, using the repurposed cable reel desk and chair by Elementals as my base item. I decorated it with office clutter decor, also by Elementals, but the desk does have a prop rezzer built into its animations. The Vindustria Chair by Dictatorshop is such an awesome looking piece and they have made a table and a shelf to go with the chair and sofa so now it’s a set! I did not have room to show it in this post, but I’ll make sure to do a post on those later. If you can’t wait for that you can hop on over to the Expo and take a look for yourself! Now… and I’m so stoked about this. The amazing prints on the right? moss&mink did those, for the ZODIAC event! It’s back guys and the line-up for this round, the Aries round, is impressive. Make sure to check it out as it opens today!

~ASW~ The Blakely Bungalow

You’re probably thinking by now, that I must have a thing for the ocean. Well you’re right, I do. I grew up on a small island in a town where nearly every house has a 180° panoramic ocean view. When Mahogany and I saw this bungalow by Adorably Strange Wares at the Home & Garden Expo I just knew I had to blog it so we plonked it down right on top of the shore on Mahogany’s home parcel. I framed the facade using the Three Green Spring Trees from Thus Magic, and if I’d had more climbing rose bushes I would’ve used them because they look absolutely amazing. The Mixed Flower Boat Planter by HJM Designs looks good on the deck and the Paper Boat Candles, also from ASW, on the water. They are going to create a wonderful atmosphere wherever you decide to use them, I promise.

The bungalow has a centre courtyard

The Blakely Bungalow is a 2 bedroom 1bath, with center open courtyard and slider barn style doors. It has a 25×25 footprint and Li is 232. Exclusive now at The Home & Garden Expo RLF Charity!
