The landing at Little Swan Lake – Brian Crain ‘Song of the Heart

Tomorrow I will celebrate my 11th Rezz Day in Second Life. Every day that I log in, as in my 1st life, I believe that something wonderful will happen. I’ve never been disappointed.

In the eleven years, I have been here in Second Life, the one constant has been my love of digging in pixel dirt. Time gets away from me, and before I know it, I’ve spent the whole day landscaping. It’s pure euphoria for the introvert in me, and I have to make myself stop and go mingle with other peeps. I like being alone, so actually tis not a bad thang.

About this new build: I was born and raised in Kentucky and now reside in southwest Indiana. Indiana has several award-winning wineries, and being a wine enthusiast of sorts, I have visited several. Okay, I have visited them all. The Vineyard is based on a few of those wineries. My last build had a small vineyard, but this one is on a much grander scale, and the landscaping reflects that. I kept the region surround by YB sim surround landscape, so it appears to be located at the base of a mountain range. There are no mountains in Indiana, but I love this surround, so it stays. Heart Garden CenterBotanicalHappyMoodStudio-Skye, and new to me landscape creators LOVEKonoha, and HISA contribute significantly to the overall aesthetic. The structures used are RoostTrompe LoeilElmMESHWORXBarnesworth AnubisApple FallThe Domineaux Effect, and Teegle. Serene and romantic was the goal. Judging by the comments from my friends who have toured the build, I may have nailed it and may never want to leave. This is no bad thang. 

While this is my private residence, like my former build, Petit Lac Des Cygne, I intend to open it to the public to enjoy. This time though, I have carved out a parcel for my private use. The goal is to open on July 5th. More photos to come.

Be kind to one another. Till we meet again. ♥
