Welcome to our special garden issue and more of our new range of features in Prim Perfect magazine, as well as those you know and love!
This month’s theme is Gardens, and we have advice for those wanting to create gardens and some gorgeous places to explore.
In addition we’re looking at two major events associated with Relay for Life—Fantasy Faire and the Home and Garden Expo (so maybe you’ll take the opportunity to follow through on some of our suggestions!).
Honour McMillan gives some advice on creating a virtual garden, while Aisling Sinclair explains the importance of (and proper ways to go about) working with ground textures.
I had the opportunity to talk with two doyens of the garden—Lilith and Dolly Heart of the Heart Garden Centre—and learn what lies behind their phenomenal success over the last seven or more years.
In addition, Honour McMillan takes us through a history of gardens, with some beautiful examples of all the different eras that she discusses.
We’re looking at gardens in other parts of the magazine too. In our continuing series on building your own home, our designer (and phenomenal builder) Winona Wiefel will be teaching you how to create a second storey in the basic skybox that you created in Parts 1 and 2 of the series. In keeping with our garden theme, she adds a roof garden for good measure!
Qwis Greenwood, in the third of our series promoting small business around the grid, has found two very different designers creating some beautiful plants for your garden—and more!
We’re near the start of some big events. Beq Janus looks back to the wonderful Fantasy Faire, while Ethan Westland looks ahead to the upcoming Home and Garden Expo.
We also have the third in our major series on Mesh. Beq Janus explores how you can create mesh objects using simple inworld tools—and once again there are samples to experiment with!
Rosamoo Mendelsohn brings us a 101 Guide to starting to hunt, while there are details from our TV shows, Designing Worlds and Happy Hunting!, available on Treet TV.
Our team of talented photographers, led by Judith Lefevre, Beq Janus, Winona Wiefel, Wildstar Beaumont, and Honour McMillan, bring you some of the most artistic eye candy from across the metaverse.
All this with News From the Grid and more!
