Perfect Ten – Get Gardening !

Oh my days – just when I thought I had ALL the gardening things I ever needed – along comes Lunar Seasonal Designs with a “modular” set that’s superb ! Such a grand choice of vegetables and the totally awesome thing is – they all come with an inbuilt menu that allows you to alter their growth state, soil colour, leaf colours etc. “Romeo” my donkey looks pretty interested in the produce lol Ohhh I almost forgot, there are tiny signs on each bed saying what you’ve planted – good idea as I always forget – and even a bed with “Unknown” – been there got the tee-shirt!

As you can probably see I was short on time and had to rather haphazardly place these out to get a shot – but you know what? I LOVE it like this – its actually rather like my real life gardening efforts! Can you spy the naughty chipmunk all curled up in his nest? I suspect he is waiting for the plants to mature to make himself a little “snack” or two. His sign changes along with his dreams – how cute is that? You can get the whole set for a reduction of 50% while the event is running – dash!

The only weeds I love.(Super bargains & Mention of Freebies).

I’ve got a bad gardening itch at the moment and so I  popped over to T-Spot to check out any new stuff and look at my “weeds”!

A lovely thick clump of weeds and flowers which make for a great splash of colour but at only 1 prim you can make a bigger clump and in this case I’ve put 3 of them in front of my window.

I’ve only bought the 1 pack but I’ve spotted that there are 3 versions of this weed patch so I will check them out to see if they’re different enough to buy but at only 35Lds so cheap! and copy and Trans!

T-Spot is a really good shop and as you can see there is also a Marketplace shop which I’ve put the link in for you to check out BUT you must see them inworld as they need to be seen to be believed.  Word of caution but it’s only a tiny weenie little word, there is a mix of prims and prices so before you buy to make sure they are what you’re after.

I think a lot if not all of the items from this shop are not only copy, mod but also trans and the reason for that is a lot of them are Full Perm.  There are restrictions on what you can do with full perm stuff which tbh I’ve never really bothered to look into even though I’ve bought full perm items before but they were still just for my own use.  Anyhow if you check the MP you will see in the description of the full perm items.

As for FREEBIES at the inworld LM there is a box of freebies, there is a bit of this and some of that and yes most of it ended up in my trash but a couple have been tucked away into my plants folder.  A small hint, ok not that small, I do remember one of the trees in this freebie box and it’s ok as a tree but it’s even better edited into a shrub.

Times up.(Freebie’s).

RL cannot be ignored and so in 5 mins I’m going to have to log off SL and log in to RL…damn!  So instead of rushing back and unpacking and scene setting my latest freebie I simply pointed and clicked on the plant which is already being used as a decor item on the beautiful little floating platform which the Mokka shop is on.

You get 2 shades of this Hydrangea, this “purple” one which looks pink/red to me and a blue version.  Just stunning.  3 prims to each clump but the boldness of the colours means you just need to use 1 or 2 of them to get a great impact.  This item is a free for all so just click on the board to buy for 0Lds but there are 2 food based GG’s as well……..and that’s it time to goooooooo……

Landscaping made cheap ‘n’ easy.(25Ld Tue).

I finally managed to work my way through the 25Ld Tues list even though it’s now Thur and yes sadly some of them are now gone as those sellers have decided that their offer will only be available for just 24 hours but fortunately Dysfunctionality (DDD)  looks like they’re keeping their 25Ld offer up for the whole week and I was lucky to snag this grass (and in the previous weeks lots and lots of shrubs).

Although I’ve rezzed it where there is already grass this is nice and dense texturing not the gapping you can get with low primmed grasses.

So I will be slapping these flowers down all around our sim.

You get 2 versions in the pack and I think that’s simply a case of bright and not so bright, check the board for the details.  Not only is this a lovely dense patch of flowers if you click on it you get a pop up hud which gives you not just 4 different textures, the only one I’m not showing you is the very white wintery one BUT also you can change the actual shape of the patch with the hud so you can have it round, half round, roundish and square.  Anyhow there is a patch of it set up in front of the 25Ld board for you to try for yourself.  When you land at the shop just follow the signs on the ground which will take you right to where the offer is.

If you’ve not been to Dysfunctionality before you are missing a treat I have bought so much from here esp the Veggies for making your own little vegtable plot.  There is much more than plants here but for me this is the first stop when making a garden in SL.

The Farm (The Challenge)

The Challenge - 22769 bauwerk & barn

A new round of The Challenge has begun and it’s really a fantastic theme this time. “Farm” is the theme and I’ve got some great garden type treats to share with you . Above is the Farm shed from Black Tulip, 100% original mesh and really low prim (uhm 27 I think) The doors open to reveal a spacious interior, so plenty of room to fill up with your gardening and ground work gear.

The Challenge - 22769 bauwerk - cleo designs

22769 have some adorable vege beds to scatter around, cabbages, carrots, beetroots & lettuce plus an empty one incase you’ve got your own vegetables. Just 2Li and so realistic – I know I will be using these in my SL garden for sure! Little teaser above of the huge amount of pieces from Cleo Designs. I adore the little tray, probably because I just LOVE french cheese.

The Challenge - Cleo Design

Cleo Designs has released this collection for your garden / farm. The bench is super comfy and ever so pretty with its casually tossed blanket over the back and plump cushions to rest upon. There is also a hen-house with chickens, couple outside that are not linked so you can place them wherever you wish, and some inside with a nest of cracked eggs. There’s baskets of fruit, freshly collected eggs in a tin carrier and of course a small cold-frame with some plants getting ready to be planted outside.

The Challenge - Percent  Makeshift sink - animated !

Last but certainly not least is the “makeshift sink” by %Percent. Its simply gorgeous to look at, and its also animated yay! Lovely poses to wash your hands from a days hard graft in the garden plus others. The tap works and also drip drip drips, nice touch is the dripping sound – dead cute. Li of 9 and soft linked – which means you can mess around with the parts and position them as you please.
