Rosemist Update …

I have friends in real life (yes, I do!), that don’t do Second Life. For them, and for you if you don’t, take a walk around Rosemist Isle.

You can find my video on my Flickr stream, or watch the full version (!) right here.

The Spring Season Challenge

As you may have read, I’m a fan of Strawberry Singh’s photography, despite not really being that interested in fashion in any world. It’s hard to find clothes to fit a small overly-curvy wolf in SL and it’s even harder to find clothes to fit a short and rounded female in the real world so I keep well away from fashion trends and thank my lucky stars if it just fits.

Beer and Blossoms

I like to have a go at Berry’s Blog Meme Challenges, though; it’s a great way to keep posting and it lets me play more with my photography. I’ll never be a professional in either world, but if it’s fun and I’m learning then that’s good enough for me. So here’s my picture for her Spring Season Challenge and my answers to her questions. The more you read my answers, the more you’ll be happy to ignore me, should you see me out and about messing with blog stuff. I’m pretty darned boring.

What is the Spring season like where you live?
In the UK, it varies. In my part of the UK it doesn’t vary. It rains. However, even in my part, the Cherry trees and the May blossoms will make a very welcome appearance and snowdrops, daffodils and croci will appear in gardens all across the country. All those things are synonymous with Spring as far as I’m concerned, but it’s really the blossoms and daffodils that do it for me. What’s not to like?

What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of Spring?
Blossoms and daffodils. When I was a child we had a multitude of both in our garden and they were stunning. It’s a link back to the past and I guess it’s now a trigger for feeling Spring-like. One of my favourite cities that I recently visited has a bank full of daffodils in Spring – you have a few weeks to catch them at their best if you’re lucky. I actually managed it this year and was there on Saturday. Fabulous!

Which Spring-themed SIM is your favourite at the moment?
I could make a list (heh – read my blog?), but I do like Calas Galadhon in the Spring and that’s why my picture is taken there. Be honest, though … if you can answer this in one go, without thinking, you either own said SIM or don’t get out much, right?

You can find one of the many Calas Galadhon SIMs here. Take snacks, you’ll be there a long, long time.

Garden of GreenBurg

I’m always wary of going to “romantic places” on my own. Even as a little wolf, I still tend to get people of all shapes, sizes and genders asking me if I want to chat – which invariably turns out to mean “will you have intimate relations with me?” (although they are usually blunter than I just was!).

Mystic Cove

For this reason, my trips to locations described as “romantic” tend to be short and camming around often elicits embarrassment as I’ll usually (accidentally) find someone canoodling when I all I want to do is see the location. Needless to say I will withdraw my camera as quickly as possible, I’m not a voyeur and never will be. All that said, I decided to take a look at the Garden of GreenBurg, simply because the cover shot on Second Life‘s Destination Guide was so appealing. Yep, I found the canoodling, so I’m sorry if my description is shorter than it should be and even sorrier if the couple concerned realised that cameras can move through walls in Second Life a little too late. The house was cute, though.

Frog Kiss

Frog Kiss

Back to the travelogue, where I didn’t get further than the Landing Zone before I had to take a picture. Not only does your greeter imply that all species are welcome, but what female of any species can resist kissing a Frog Prince? As I have already married my ideal partner, it was a dead certainty I wouldn’t be disappointed in love after kissing him, but if you haven’t found your Prince Charming yet, the frog does use breath freshener …

Candlelit Ruins

I didn’t have time to explore all of GreenBurg, but it really is a great place for couples. There are little seats and nooks and houses where couples can cuddle and spend time together and the ambience is both romantic and peaceful, so it’s well worth taking a sweetie and spending some time there. Please be aware it’s a public SIM, though, and that little wolves doing blogs don’t always want to walk everywhere. For their part, little wolves will remember that they need the exercise and will attempt to walk more. Cuddling is not the only available entertainment, though.

Dinner at Greenburg

Dinner at Greenburg

The SIM is really very beautiful, with a mystical feel. There are strange plants and lighting effects and strange animals, too. I even found dinner set out for me in the most wonderful setting (no, I don’t really eat them, but I have to attempt to live up to my lupinicity (is that a word?)). I also found a way around my laziness, too, which was great fun. You can fly on a dandelion seed all around the SIM! It makes a change from ballooon and carpet rides as you get to pilot the seed yourself, and it makes you look as if your dieting has worked, too. I recommend it!

All in all, well worth a visit, even if you are alone at the time. So much to see and explore, I haven’t scratched the surface, but at least you know why. Beware the Pericam!
