Living Green

This post was inspired by something in real life. My favorite breakfast spot has a living wall near the entrance. I came across a living wall for sale in SL and knew I had to do something with it.

Hanging Out in the Bayou

It’s hot. It’s muggy. It’s a perfect day to sit barefoot in the shade of a big old tree, feeling the breeze come off the river. A tall, cold glass of lemonade would taste great right about now!
