Sundials in the snow

Miss Soleil Snook of Caledon Stormhold held the grand opening of Snook's Garden Center yesterday. Her garden really suits the wooded beauty of Stormhold, giving some formality to the high trees and jagged peaks. I used to live in Stormhold, and sometimes I still hanker for the weathered stones, the river, the waterfall, and the trees... Urban planning FTW. I wish more of Second Life had it. There's nothing more jarring than a strip club next to a formal teahouse, although I guess this mirrors real life in a sadly realistic way.

But can my skirt fit into the privvy?

Small side note, Miss Snook is one of the few people I know that tries to play her avatar as an older woman. I admire that; she's gone through a good deal of trouble to age the avatar's face and body appropriately, and often roleplays stiff joints, especially during dances. I made a "me" avatar once that tried to replicate my real life body -- boy that was weird. I'll blog it someday.

I haven't studied formal gardens much (although I have a preoccupation with them), but I suspect that it's all about the vistas. Miss Snook's flowered archways are especially nice. I'm not sure what magic she uses to keep them green and flowering in the middle of this winter chill.

Yeah, yeah, I still need to set the dual layers of this frock with my skirt script.
