Easy to miss me.(Freebie).

I click everything which turned out to be lucky as I don’t think many of us would have known that this is a FREEBIE or maybe a mistake lol.  There isn’t any sign to say it’s “free” it’s just there among all the other really good plants/shrubs you will find in the Reid Parkin shop.

The larger version is as it’s rezzed and it’s only 1 prim even at that size but as you can see it’s editable.

You will recognise a lot of the plants/shrubs/ivy’s from this shop as their planting is used by many including us to create spots of interest in our garden and sim.

PS.  Her shop isn’t massive and this plant is next to a purple one in a pot so look for that and this is right there.

Focus B* Focus!(Freebie & Bargains).

I finally found my new SL house, it took a lot of indecision and rummaging through my invent and inane muttering but I finally found it and now that I’ve made my bloddy mind up it’s time to pull my finger out of my perfectly pert AV bum and sort out all the mess and clutter I’ve got spread over my half of the sim. Since there are also a lot of patches over our sim as well I decided to pop back to the “Over the Moons” shop where I bought these brilliant sim covering pine trees.  I’m pretty sure I’ve shown you them before but just in case you’ve missed them check them out.  You get a cluster of I believe it’s 9 linked trees and they’re copy/mod and only 25Lds but even better than all of that they have great texturing.  I LOVE these pine tree’s not just for their sim coverage but just how they look.

The Marketplace shop seems to have more than the inworld shop but I don’t think the freebie is in the MP shop so the link is given for both.

This is a large shrub/bush called Bleeding hearts which is the actual name of this plant in RL.  It’s a freebie on a board just at the entrance to the small inworld shop and you get this and a Valentine’s card…I binned the card but kept the plant because I’m hard-hearted LOL.  What you can’t see is that lots of the very pink flowers are slowly falling around this plant.  Pretty sweet and it’s such a size it makes a really good feature.  Can’t remember if it’s mod but I know it’s non-copy.  I was tempted to go back and buy, for 0Lds, a whole load of them but that would be rude.

50Lds for this long strip of hedging.  Super long but you get this length for 2 prims and a half the size one for just 1 prims.  You also get I think it’s 3 or 4 different colours plus the same again but with a full bright option.

This little climbing rose bush cost, yup 10Lds.  1 Prim and perfect.

Last 10Ld purchase was this patch of flowers.

This is just one example of the grassy, flowery sim coverage the shop has.

If you can’t see what I’m showing you on the MP shop then you will find it in the inworld shop and you will also be able to see examples of some of the plants as they’ve been used outside for the little shopping area landscaping.

FREE, 25Lds and “you paid how much”!!!!

Faith has waved her fairy wand and our sim has gone from blinding white to green in celebration of Spring, and yes I know it’s early but it’s our SL and in our SL it’s getting warmer.

Anyhow, I decided it was time to refresh the tree’s, any excuse to go shopping.

This is the FREEBIE from Nadine Reverie’s shop called 3D Trees (but there is more than just tree’s in her shop or rather her sims).

I’ve rezzed 2 copies of this Hawthorn Tree and shrunk the one that’s slightly in front of the larger one.  Both sizes are 10prims but this is a substantial tree and if you have a small plot then a tree of this size is a perfect plot filler.  Although it’s a freebie it lacks none of the quality and a nice little bonus is that it’s copy and MOD, my fav word.  I didn’t tear it apart limb from limb but I know that you can take big chunks of it to create big shrubs and they work out at just 1 prim.  So I’ve left these 2 on our sim and when I get back in I’m gonna shred em.

These trees are the 25Ld ones and I will be back to the “Over the Moon” shop as there is other landscaping items at more than reasonable prices.

All of these pictures were taken in our sims setting and I think there is a lovely haze around these trees but they stand up so well in so many settings and again only 25Lds! Copy as well, not sure about mod as I’ve only just started slapping stuff down and will get to the finer landscaping when I’ve got all the planting I want.

These trees come in sets of 6 linked together and for the linked trees they’re only 2 prims and they have a nice random link to them and I have spotted they are mod but I’ve not played with them yet.

These are the “you paid how much”trees.

TBH I can’t remember how much I paid for these Larch tree’s it probably was something like 1,250Lds and they were worth every Linden.

One of the lessons I’ve learned is that if you can buy landscaping that is seasonal then buy it because if it’s as quality as these are they will last you not just for SL years but SL seasons as changing out seasonal landscaping can cost you so much money in the end so trees, shrubs etc like this can end up being a great investment in the end.

You can also buy these trees at cheaper prices, I think they start at 300Lds, of course at that price they come with some restrictions ie non-copy, non-seasonal etc but it’s clearly marked on the box as to what that set does.  As I’ve said I’ve got the seasonal and in this picture they’re set for spring.  This is a great shop even if you just have a small plot as you can buy eveything from a single tree to a forest and with if you check out her MP shop you can buy from as little as 10Lds!

PS. These massive trees and unbelievably only 2-3 prims.

3D Trees. (Inworld) OK, The LM will take you a set LM and in front of you is 3 boxes clearly marked and you just click on the one for the trees and once you’ve TPed you just  follow the path through the”golden archway” past the AV, I swear he has been stood there for a couple of days now, past the grapevines on the trellis and VOILA it’s just there on the small hill in front of the Swamp Cyprus tree’s LOL.  Sounds a bit convoluted but honestly if you go over I think it will all seem clear as to where you have to go to find it plus I must add that I don’t think the tree is marked as being free but when you click on it you can see it is.
