032518_002 FIG Tree from Little Branch

Shiny Shabby opened on March 20 and this beautiful Fig Tree from The Little Branch can be found at the event. The lovely Fig Tree is a multi-season tree with animation. It has a full trunk with a gentle bend and the spread of leaves is rounded. In the box, you will also find other goodies such as animated grass (v4) and animated summer snake grass. All items can be resized so you can fit what you need.

Just a little general information about the Common Fig tree (printed from TreeFolks)

  • the scientific name is Ficus carica
  • it is native to the Middle East
  • the common fig can grow to 25 feet and is often very wide, however, it be pruned into shapes as desired
  • the fruit (the fig) is a very desirable fruit for animals and for humans alike
  • the tree does not have to be pollinated in order to produce fruit – it can produce two crops per year and will produce fruit on the current season’s growth as well
  • If you do not prune, the trees will grow to be scrawling and perfect for tree-climbing

.. all made of stars ..

Sparkles abound … the stars fall from the sky.  She wonders if she should make a wish or two or more.  But do wishes really come true?  In her experience, the likelihood is slim. But she is still hopeful, still wants to make the leap…to hope, to dream, to yearn, to pray… she makes the wish as the stars continue to sprinkle around her. A dreamy state of being helps the possibilities seem endless.  She will wake up tomorrow… but for now… the wish takes her to a wonderfully happy place.

.. a day at the beach ..

Summer is here.  Temperatures in much of the world went from overly cool to steamy hot in just days.  Many places went from winter right in to summer!  When the temperatures rise and we have a few days… are you like so many, and head to the nearest body of water  – beach or not?

Sometimes when you sit at the beach, the best part is watching what is going on around you… right?  So when an elephant and its baby walk by or a dog flies a kite… it’s just all in “a day at the beach”.

“We are tied to the ocean.
And when we go back to the sea,
whether it is to sail or to watch –
we are going back from whence we came.”
