I think I reached another milestone of my local witch-druid existence today.
There is this elderly lady living a few doors down that I make a point of chatting with when I meet her, and help her with the heavier part of gardening tasks when I have the time. She has spontaneously taken it on herself to make a garden on a disused patch of lawn/ground between buildings.
Not everyone likes this (because people, right?), some people complain she has no right to decide single-handedly about what belongs to the whole association, and so on. She pays these people no heed, because she’s a headstrong, crotchety but good-hearted old lady, and what she does brings beauty to the world.
Well, today she stopped me while I was going by. She held up a few new cuttings, up for planting, and asked me to breathe on them so they’d grow well. Then she thanked me and got back to her business.
From the front door of the glass-walled gift shop at the Alnwick Garden in the far northeast of England, the scene looks innocent enough. A sapphire green English lawn slopes gently downward, toward traditional, ornamental gardens of rose and bamboo. Across the small valley, water cascades down a terraced fountain.
But a hundred or so plantings kept behind bars in this castle’s garden are more menacing — and have much to tell visitors about poison and the evolutionary roots of medicine.
“These Plants Can Kill” warn two signs on a locked, iron gate that’s also marked with a skull and crossbones.
The Duchess of Northumberland (aka Jane Percy) started the Poison Garden in 2005 as part of the 12-acre, elaborate garden on the grounds of her family’s home, Alnwick Castle.
Many of England’s cities and towns have apothecary gardens — historical plots containing plants turned into treatments centuries ago by doctors, herbalists, religious folks and shamans. Most such gardens exist today to teach visitors about the history of medicine.
Don’t Break This Deal AU comic, where Wirt tried to trick Bill, the demon underestimated Wirt, and both of them ended up sharing one body! Part 6, where Bill pokes around in Wirt’s mind and opens something he shouldn’t have, resulting in Wirt passing out and meeting The Beast
Well… this took me a little longer than I expected (as usual😆) But… the results are here to stay, so that justifies the cause😉. 8 flowers/bushes - 24 swatches.
To my followers; You guys are amazing and give me the drive and inspiration to make the most beautiful CC❤️I poor my heart and soul into this for you guys!❤️
Some (technical) info:
I don’t use Adfly, nor will I ever use this.
These are Add-ons (not standalone); if you don’t own the SP/EP/GP they won’t show up in-game.
Swatches are categorized; once installed they are sorted at the end of the line BG swatches. therefore; at first not recognizable. Once you’ve clicked on the bush/flower and look at the swatches they will show up.
They were made with Sims4Studio Jackpot.
The last screenshot is a unedited screenshot of the bushes/flowers.
I should not have to ask this but please… respect my TOU; Don’t re-upload these items. The TOU-page will be added this week.
And last but not least… let my know if you guys like them!☺️ I also would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Enjoy your time with family/friends/loved-ones!
