.. the poplar tree ..

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider,
every green tree is far more glorious
than if it were made of gold and silver.”
— Martin Luther

032418 poplar tree little branch_001a

I’ve been unable to blog for the past few weeks but I’m here now with this awesome tree from The Little Branch which can currently be found at the faMESHed event. The beautiful Poplar tree is a four season tree and has animation as well. In the box, you will also find other goodies such as fluffy and snake grass and mesh hills. There are 2 versions of the tree included – a large version and a small 2LI version. Both can be resized so you can have a variety within your scene.

Just a little general information about White Poplar trees (printed from Woodland Trust)

  • the scientific name is Populus alba and the family is Salicaceae
  • it is a deciduous broadleaf tree native to central and southern Europe, though it is naturalized in the UK
  • the white poplar can grow to 20m or around 65ft
  • once fertilised, female catkins develop into fluffy cotton-like seeds, which fall in late summer
  • the underside of the leaves is paler than the upper side. The stems of the leaves are also distinctly flattened
  • Leaves are dark green-grey and white-ish on the underside, thanks to a bright white coating of woolly hair. Most leaves have five lobes and have irregular teeth around the edge
  • white poplar was widely thought to be non-native in the UK, however, references to ‘abel’ trees in historic documents indicate it has been here much longer than previously thought, and so it could be native

.. just one more day ..

arcade blog 4 123007

Tomorrow is the last day of 2017 as well as the last day for the December round of The Arcade Gacha Event.  December’s round is always fun-filled with so many great finds. Some are very holiday oriented while others are about celebration that can happen throughout the year.  I am closing out the month with showing a few more options. If you haven’t had the chance, run out tomorrow (Sunday, December 31, 2017) before midnight SLT so that you can try to win these. And don’t forget there are gifts under the tree too!

Take a look at the vlog to see items from Ariskea, kunst, Aria, Scarlet Creative, Nani, !gO!, Moss&Mink, llorisen, 22769, hive, tarte, Razzberry Inc and Black Bantam. My outfit is from Belle Epoque and the skin I am wearing is from Atomic.  My hair is from Nani and the jewelry is from LaGyo.

Happy New Year all!
