This Morning I Told The Flowers..

this morning
I told the flowers
what I’d do for you
and they blossomed

Rupi Kaur, The Sun and Her Flowers

InsurreKtion is participating in this round of The Liaison Collaborative with the Spring Cleaning Sale collection. That’s everything you see in the pile to the left. Except the Bullfinch. The Bullfinch is TLC. Everything definitely looks like stuff you’d find when cleaning the attic and basement. Spring is here (not where I live in RL but everywhere else) and it represents a time of rebirth and renewal and things like flowers and love blossoming. It is time for spring cleaning, open the windows and let fresh air blend with your spring blossom scented floor cleaner!

Bloom Springtime Market just opened and Sari-Sari is there with the adorable Birdhouse Men & Wooden Farmhouse Lanterns. The only reason they’re in my yard sale is because they’re Copy so I can keep a set for myself!

I’m feeling casual and comfy so today I’m wearing the Tommy Polo by ERAUQS, which matches so nicely with the ERAUQS Blaise Jogger pants. The Tommy Polo is a new release and it’s available right now at Men Only Monthly. It’s compatible with Legacy (shown on me), Jake and Gianni male mesh bodies.

Modern Serenity

The beautiful Beaked Hazelnut Tree by The Little Branch is their new release for MAN CAVE. This short, deciduous shrub is commonly found in the forest understory or along forest edges.

The Riverstone House by DaD is one of their previous releases worth mentioning. Beautifully crafted in stone and wood. One large deck along two sides and one smaller but still decent size deck in the entrance area which leads to one bedroom, a bathroom and an open plan living and kitchen area. With carefully designed stone, brick and wood accents this home is a contemporary beauty. Footprint 36,3×27 and 97 LI.

The most recent addition to the Never Totally Dead collection of replicas from le Hameau de la Reine in Versailles, France, is Le Colombier. It was used as a pigeon and poultry house, and therefore not used for human lodging. I made it into a charming countryside summer house for this picture. Check out this and the rest of the beautiful collection of Hameau de la Reine builds at the Never Totally Dead mainstore!

crate is participating in this round of Equal10 with the colorful Lilly Lounge that’s available in Orange and Aqua versions, PG and Adult versions too. As always, created with peaceful, positive intent!

The Little Branch is at this round of Uber with the Cottonwood Tree. Members of the Poplar family, cottonwoods were important to Native Americans who used all parts of the tree. Their trunks were used as dugout canoes. The bark provided forage for horses and a bitter, medicinal tea for their owners. Sweet sprouts and inner bark were a food source for both humans and animals.

Gone Skiing

Oh hey! La Petite Vie is here, well, they’re at Cosmopolitan with the La Passerelle; a micro chalet for both summer hiking and winter skiing. We’ve been waiting for the perfect minimalistic contemporary mountain lodge haven’t we?

The Little Branch is participating in this round of The Mens Dept with the Scots Pine Tree v2. The Scots pine is claimed by Scotland as its national tree. This pine’s long life makes it a popular specimen for some landscape applications, as well. In fact, the Scots pine has an expected life-span of 150 to 300 years; the oldest recorded specimen was in Lapland, Northern Finland, estimated at more than 760 years old.

Now in The Little Branch mainstore is their Douglas Fir Tree v2. Botanist-explorer David Douglas — this tree’s namesake — described it as “one of the most striking and truly graceful objects in nature.” Tree expert Michael Dirr heralded it as “one of the noblest forest trees.” To say the Douglas fir is beloved by the tree people of the world is definitely accurate. The general public has a number of reasons to appreciate this tree as well. Douglas fir is one of the most important lumber species, it makes up nearly half of all Holiday trees grown in the U.S., and its attractive appearance and growth rate make it popular in yards and parks.
