The Magical Garden

1-secret-garden-sm

Imagine a place where bunnies sit, foxes pose and kitty cats pounce. Where secret white flowers glitter and shine. Where twinkling lights peek through the grass and a cage becomes a resting place.

[ keke ] has released this beautiful Secret Garden Flowers set for the October round of The Forest. This is the event where you pay a fee and wander through the forest to collect all of the beautiful offerings from some of the best designers on the grid. That’s right – you get them all. The link above takes you to the website, where you can check out the shopping guide and the link in the credits takes you directly to the event.

It is a magical place full of magical things. Visit before it disappears on October 25th.

Visiting Alirium

1 Alirium_013J

Today I took a break from shopping. Well, unless you don’t count the Marketplace purchase I made of the Erratic Mindy shirt I’d been meaning to buy 😉 Instead, I decided to pick a new location from the Second Life Destination Guide. I saw several places that looked interesting, but I decided to pay Alirium a visit. The description caught my attention right away:

Begin in a wintery shack, then warm up as you explore all four seasons spread across a radiant spectrum of gorgeous colors.

I didn’t actually begin in the shack, but rather a black space with butterflies floating around me and a large white hole. Holding my breath, I plunged in and landed in a small shop for the landscaping you can find on the sim. Then, out a doorway, through a tunnel and I found myself in a meadow bursting with colour. I wandered around a bit until I found a kaleidoscope of butterflies above a field of stunning yellow grass with beautiful pink trees in the distance. And there I stayed.

I am in awe as I wander the myriad sims in Second Life, amazed at the beauty and creativity the residents produce. Although I can’t do them justice, I am happy to just take my photographs and share my wonder with you.
