Spring into action

Feelings of spring

 

The change in season may be different for me at the moment but I can still appreciate and celebrate the changes in the Secondlife environment that reflect the delicious bursting of colours that is synonymous with Spring. Spring is a special season for lots of reasons, the rebirth of plants as the earth and weather starts warming after winter, the arrival of cute baby animals and the shaking off of heavy winter clothes.  So slipping into some suitably seasonal clothes I took up Strawberry Singh’s Spring challenge  (http://strawberrysingh.com/2014/03/31/spring-season-challenge/) and went exploring to share one of my favourite Spring themed sims while answering her questions.

 

1.What is the spring season like where you live?

Wet, it seems to have a lot in common with Autumn / Fall. Wet , windy and cool but with increasing hours of very welcome sunshine. I live in a rural area so there’s always more signs from nature that spring is on it’s way before we start commenting on the change of season. Fruit trees get a shiny appearance as buds swell and then out pop the blossoms, pastel pinks and whites.. plum , apple and pear trees dressing themselves in their spring time best but they’re overshadowed by the arrival of the frilly fancy cherry blossoms. The town where I work has a row of cherry trees down the main street this is great indicator of the arrival of Spring and then the passing of the season as the petals float down as we move into Summer.

2.What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of spring?

Daffodils, their bright cheerful yellow blooms are such a cheerful sight as they bob about on slender stems racing other spring flowering bulbs to show off. Closely followed by lambs.. lambs and calves bringing a busy time for many families in my community.

3.Which spring-themed sim in Second Life is your favorite at the moment?

It all starts with a smile, which is where I took all of these photos. I suggest you go and wander if you are looking for a lovely outdoor environment to explore or for taking photos, everywhere I turned was a potential setting for another photo..and my camera really doesn’t do it justice.

{ZOZ} and Bubblefish

I couldn’t resist using this fun flower pose prop from Bubblefish, it is one of two gacha machines Bubblefish has at the Love and War, 30L 4th Anniversary Gacha Event. The close also shows off my lovely manicure courtesy of {ZOZ} you can pick up this and a similar butterfly tips polish at Fashion Stars.

Before I finish up with the details of what and where I went to I want to share some fantastic news, I have been accepted as part of the blogger group for Osito. I slipped in there earlier today for the first time and fell in love. What a fantastic store with separates and dresses that spoke to me of femininity without over the top girly sugary sweetness. In other words my idea of a perfect store, patterns and designs have a healthy influence of retro vintage styling whilst feeling fresh and very wearable for any casual situation. You will definitely be seeing me wearing more from this great store , including an upcoming post with their Rock Attitude Fashion Fair item. Check my sidebar for a permanent SLurl to Osito.
