Spotted Loosestrife .:SHD:.

Spotted Loosestrife .:SHD:.

Spotted Loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata).

In this package you find three versions of the Spotted Loosestrife:
1 prim sculpted (4 apparent prims) and the standard 3-prim plant in flexi and non-flexi.

Mod/copy/no-trans. Have as many as you like, resize as you like.

The title is almost longer than the post itself …

1.) .:SHD:. songbirds can now be found in the Conservatorium (a.k.a. Birdcage) just outside the Grimalkin Workshop at Majestic!

2.) Selected Grimalkin Workshop products can now be found at the .:SHD:. store at Missing Beckett!

3.) For those who prefer an in-world group over a subscribe-o-matic, there’s now the .:SHD:. & IB Update Group! It’s a combined update group for .:SHD:. and Iron Bird. I’ll post releases there as they happen, whereas I’ll post them on the subscribeo no more often than weekly, but otherwise it shouldn’t matter much which of the two groups you join – you’re not missing out (well, except on Iron Bird release notices if you choose the subscribeo ;))

Siam Tulip .:SHD:.

Siam Tulip .:SHD:.

The Siam Tulip (Curcuma alismatifolia), also known as Summer Tulip, is not really a tulip but rather a tropical plant related to ginger and turmeric.

In this package you find two versions of the Siam Tulip:
1 prim sculpted (4 apparent prims) and the standard 3-prim plant.

Mod/copy/no-trans. Have as many as you like, resize as you like.

Songbird: Coal Tit .:SHD:.

Songbird: Coal Tit .:SHD:.

This is probably the last of the small tits (I’m thinking of making a long-tailed tit some day still though). It’s the first one that blinks! Also, I’ve rewritten the scripts to lower the script-time footprint, and went back to LSL (Mono still having some bugs that need fixing).

The Coal Tit (Periparus ater) is a common songbird throughout Eurasia and northern Africa.

In this package you find 10 versions of the tit, all mod/copy and two prims only.

3 sound options:
– “Coal Tit (sound on touch)” plays one of three songs when somebody touches it.
– “Coal Tit (sound at intervals)” plays one of three songs at random intervals (25-50 seconds) during daytime; at night it is silent.
– “Coal Tit (silent)” makes no sounds.

For each of the 3 sound options, there are 3 versions of the Coal Tit:
– “Coal Tit – wear/R hand” attaches to your right hand and activates a pose.
– “Coal Tit – wear/L shoulder” attaches to your left shoulder.
– “Coal Tit” is intended to be rezzed as a decoration.

All above birds blink their eyes. In addition, you’ll find a “Coal Tit (unscripted)” that does nothing at all 🙂

Leafy Succulents .:SHD:.

Leafy Succulents .:SHD:.

These sculpted succulents don’t correspond exactly to a real-life plant, but could stand in for various plants of genus Dudleya, Graptopetalum, Aeonium, or others.

Included: 2 shapes of leafy succulents (pointy leaves and rounded leaves), in 5 colours each: green/purple, green/yellow, red/purple, purple/red, and greyscale for easy tinting.

1 prim each, sculpted.
Mod/copy/no-trans. Have as many as you like, resize or squish/stretch as you like.
Try tinting them with shades of pale green for even more colours!

Living Stones, orange .:SHD:.


I signed up for another hunt even though I keep saying I won’t do another: the Diversity Hunt. What’s different? Well, this time hunters can choose between separate paths, and one path is just for garden-related items! So I just had to be in there 🙂 See the picture for SHD’s hunt prize.

Pink Gaura .:SHD:.

From Wikipedia:
“Gaura lindheimeri (Lindheimer’s Beeblossom, White Gaura, Pink Gaura, Lindheimer’s Clockweed) is a species of Gaura native to southern Louisiana and Texas. It is a perennial herbaceous plant growing to 50–150 cm tall. It is used in either garden beds or pots for accent colour and delicate texture. It grows best in full sun and can survive lengthy periods of drought.”

Each package contains gauras in two versions, one a bit bushier than the other.
Each version comes in a 1-prim sculpted (4 apparent prims) shape as well as the traditional 3-prim shape.

Mod/copy/no-trans. Have as many as you like, resize as you like.
