The Garden of Nowhere

I gave this post this title because so many of the scenes you see in my photos no longer exist. It is wonderful being able to create a setting on a whim, inventory and prim allowance withstanding. While the vast majority of the items I use still lay languishing in the depths of inventory, they may never again see the light of day, or they may be brought out, dusted off and used another day.

I have a home in Second Life. I spent about two months working on the current version, getting it just right. But I rarely ever go there. Instead, I tend to hang out on a bare platform until a new bauble or structure or plant inspires me to bring a scene to life. Unlike a lot of bloggers, my workspace is uncluttered. Once the credits have been captured, the items disappear, one by one, until I am back on my simple prim platform once again.

One designer whose work who frequents my posts – and also my permanent home – is [ keke ]. Delicate, detailed and delightful are the first words that come to my mind when I think of Kean Kelly’s creations. I am sure (if you look closely at the photo) you will recognise the butterflies, which have flittered their way through several of my recent posts. She has just released the lovely allium flowers for the July round of Collabor88 and in her mainstore, you can find the lovely garden gate and fence. If you were a subscriber of Deco(c)rate a couple of months ago when she contributed the Neverland Gate, you can now pick up the add-ons at the mainstore, as well. As ever, they are a lovely example of her talent and craft.

Close your eyes, imagine you can hear the breeze as it plays through the grass, feel the flutter of the butterfly’s wings against your cheek and feel the warmth of the late afternoon sun. It is all there, in the Garden of Nowhere. But do hurry; it will disappear before the sunset fades to grey.

    Very serene, a nice place to hang out. Love how you captured a little of the sun going down across the grass.

    Haha! My platform is exactly like that with the exception that if I do like something and can’t live without it, I slot it into the house and grounds area below.

      lol I do that, too. If something really captures my fancy I’ll do a quick peek and a mini-makeover downstairs 🙂

Talk to me! (please? )
