Château Fleur

Sunrise at Château Fleur

Having worked diligently in the French Garden of the Petit Trianon over the past week (to the point where my rl garden is now extremely jealous), I am delighted to announce the opening of the first of two residential rentals, Château Fleur.

Situated on the eastern point of the garden, it's the perfect location to enjoy a SL sunrise. Sheltered by mature trees and surrounded by water on three sides, a private dock allows you to moor your own boat so that you are ready to explore the duchy by sea.

Le Chateau de Compiègne supplied many of the stone and boiserie details including those from the Salon des fleurs. Wide expanses of glass make for rooms full of light and the three balconies allow you to relax and dine outdoors. A full security system is also included.

A New Summer Love

Falling in love again
Never wanted to
What am I to do?
Can't help it

F. Hollander & S. Lerner

Isn't the first day of summer the perfect time to muse about a new love?

I was suprised to see that I hadn't blogged for almost a month now. Where did the time go? The days flying by in a spring/summer jumble of activity. I guess that's the way it is with a new love; so much to do, so much to explore :))

How did this happen? Well, I was working away happily in the Queen's Hamlet (Provence Coeur Est), setting out some gardens, creating some new wallpaper for le Petit Trianon, when LindenLabs announced a grandfathering on Homestead sim prices. That's all it took, the promise of more land at a fixed rate! I fought against it for a while but the temptation was too great. After all, the trianon would be much more complete with its' Jardin Français! My partners in crime, Skye & Bedrich were no help in shoring up by willpower, as they too ran off to make further additions to the Duchy. So up it went, Provence Coeur Est2 (about 30 seconds after I placed the order)!!

The digging started, hardscaping, landscaping, tree building, fountain building, flower buying, bluebird buying (all while wearing the finest of gowns ;)) Yesterday, I quietly remove the access restrictions and welcomed my first official visitors apart from those good friends who have been popping in on a regular basis. Today I thought I would make the official announcement.

So please drop by Le Petit Trianon-Le Jardin Français located in Provence Coeur Est2. It is still very much a work in progress, but the birds are singing amidst the flowers & fountains. You'll probably see me over in a corner somewhere, hauling another tree into place :))
