If you long for a mind at rest and a heart that cannot harden…go find a gate that opens wide into a secret garden. ~ author unknown

The English translation is The lake of swans, or to the french it is known as Swan Lake. Either way swans have always held a fascination for me.  Next to Cinderella the stories of The Wild Swans, The Swan Princess and The Ugly Duckling are ones I read time and time again. No surprise that Swan Lake is my favorite ballet. Let’s not forget the Grace Kelly movie The Swan.  Maybe it’s more than just a fascination?

In my last post I thought the grounds were done but,  after consulting with Henry it was decided to flattened the area and start over as it looked nothing like the inspiration piece.  Le lac des cygnes is a small build as over half the region is under water.  Just the Chateau, a small lake and enough land to walk around it was all that we required.  Not surprisingly, over half the prims are spent in landscaping alone.  The grounds are teaming with wildlife. The two main living levels are fully furnished and yes, there are prims to spare.  I had forgotten what could be done with just 5K prims.

Le lac des cygnes is open to the public 24/7. Please keep in mind that on rare occasions access may be denied when both Henry and I are in residence.  We hope you stop by and enjoy our little corner of the grid soon.  Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥
