Autumn Senescence

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.

Elizabeth Lawrence

Featuring the Wild Berry Shrub by The Little Branch today. It’s available exclusively right now at NEO Japan until October 20th. After the event it will be made available at their mainstore and marketplace.

The fruit has a five-pointed crown on the underside of the berry. Wild berries have thin branches and produce petite flowers. The leaves are green and broad, with a defined point, and they turn bright red in the fall. They’re 100% mesh and come with gently animated leaves giving them a very life-like appearance. Detailed, realistic textures and a choice of 4 seasons to choose from via an easy to use pop-up menu make this a perfect choice for all year round landscaping. Land Impact is just 4LI but as permissions are both Copy & Modify can be adapted to suit your landscaping and gardening needs. Complimentary landscaping products are included in the box.

Imagining Provence

What does summer in Provence look like? In my imagination it looks something like this. I’ve never been there but when I try to imagine what it looks like, I can almost feel the warm Mediterranean air, I can see the lavender fields and blooming flower bushes, stone houses with Roman style tile roofs, walled villages, cobblestone roads and old men playing Bocce.

All the buildings in this picture, including the Bocce game, the makeshift table, the tray with apéro, the urns and the lavender field are part of Never Totally Dead‘s ‘A Walk in Provence’ gacha. You can play this gacha at their mainstore!

The beautiful Vintage Wrought Patio tables and chairs is available at the CHEZ MOI mainstore. The chairs contain single and couple (PG) animations, automatic prop rezzer and texture change options upon touch.

The fantastic looking trees are all from The Little Branch and you can see the Southern Magnolia Shrub and the Tulip Tree in this picture. The trees are extremely life like and animated like a gentle breeze is blowing and upon touch you get a season changer menu so you can easily change from summer to autumn. You know it’s time for that now! The Magnolia Shrub is available at the Ark event (last day today!) and the Tulip Tree is at the Sense event until October 8th.

Carroll’s Oysters

He was a bold man that first ate an oyster.

Jonathan Swift

Yeah, it was most likely a woman… So I’m still down the shore (I recently learned that’s what they say in New Jersey when they’re at the beach). I guess having grown up on a small island in the North Atlantic Ocean has left its mark because I love it here; it’s peaceful and the sound of the ocean and the seagulls soothes the soul. Also, Carroll’s Hot Topless Oysters are simply the best in Second Life, just sayin’.

Idyll – Home and Garden Design 2019

Det var solnedgang
Det var latter, det var sang
Det var sommerfri
Det var sjø og magi
Det var deg og det var meg
Det var minner som aldri vil dø
Det var evighet
Og en sol som farga himmelen rød

Postgirobygget – Idyll
We found idyll through EED’s All Aboard Island

Norwegian summers are short, especially in the north where I live. Some summers are not even warm! Makes it very easy to appreciate days like this, where you can stay outside all day and night and you know; when the sun is shining, it shines bright not just all day but all night too. Idyll to me is to be watching the midnight sun together with my beloved; on the shore, enjoying bonfire barbeque and ice cold beverages.

Get closer and stay close forever.

EED’s All Aboard Island is a group of rocks, palm trees, plants, a sitting area, bonfire, boat and birds on a sandy beach. It is a tropical idyll! You can find it and more oceanic themed creations from EED at the Home & Garden Expo which is open until April 7. Check out Mahogany’s blog post for more!

Come Away With Me – Landscape Architect 2019

I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won’t you try to come

Norah Jones – Come Away With Me

You can decorate an entire sim with .:Tm:.Creation’s landscaping and decor items if you want to. Today I want to show you a couple of items that were released late last year that are now available in the .:Tm:.Creation Mainstore. The Wild Camping Nature scene, with animations, is a cute little campsite with rocks, blanket, a bunny, campfire (no flame), barrel and plants. I also wanted to include The Bridge; decorative and walkable – It looks so wonderful, it’s actually one of my favourite .:Tm:.Creation items.

The lovely pose is Jess Poses Couple 13 which is available in the Jess Poses Marketplace.

Come away with me
And I’ll never stop loving you

The Picnic Tree – Landscape Architect 2019

On a picnic morning without a warning
I looked at you and somehow I knew

EED’s SPRING is in the AIR TREE

On a day for singing
My heart went winging
A picnic grove was our rendezvous

EED’s ‘SPRING is in the AIR TREE’ is a big tree with pretty spring-flowers around it. Perfect for picnics, or just to sit and relax for a moment. Out of the box it has a Land Impact of 50. It comes with a resizer script so you can make it fit your garden or park perfectly. The tree is available now at the EED Marketplace.

You and I in the sunshine
We strolled the fields and farms
At the last light of evening
I held you in my arms

If you like this tree you might like to take a look at the Exquisite Eye Decorations Marketplace store for more beautiful decor for your home and garden.
