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

.. yuki no yume ~ dream of snow ..

Each day you can admire the moon, the snow and the flowers.

Yuki No Yume  112213

As winter arrives in the Northern Hemisphere in our real world, so it does in Second Life.  Winter sims are popping up all over and the joy of the holidays are stirring up events and parties and fund raisers.  In the midst of it all, a beautiful sim has opened.  “Yuki No Yume.. Dream of Snow” is Jac Mornington’s latest development.  Jac has always admired the Japanese winter scenes that he has found in images online, around creations in Second Life and has toyed with opening such a sim to the public for a few years.  When his partner, Rie Silverfall, told him she would love to have a Japanese winter sim, Jac knew he could make it happen.  He set out to find some very awesome landscaping pieces from Alex Bader, Kriss Lehmann, Nadine Reverie, Tobias Novi, Kendra Zaurak, and others.  He then started setting things out.  Playing with the design, looking up images online to help him set his vision of the Japanese landscape.  He picked up some gorgeous builds from Van Auster and Ryusho Ort to bring the little homestead together.  A waterfall falls into a stream which runs through the setting into a creek eddy turning in to a frozen lake where the beautiful Japanese red-crowned cranes play.  The setting is serene, peaceful and beautifully put together.  As you walk along the paths, you will see the movement of the water, the birds, and the other animals… and yes, you will feel that you have fallen in to truly natural existence of winter.  Be sure to visit, the sim is open now and it is not to be missed.
