Strawberry is asking us about Spring this Monday, a few fun questions which can point us to other places for taking pictures. This is my favorite season of all time, so I'm more than happy to share a few thoughts with everyone.
- What is the spring season like where you live? – It gets a bit warmer and rainier here, and all kinds of things bloom. It's a good time to plant things, or go to the beach, or just spend time out in nature because it's warm without being too hot. I particularly like all of the color in among the green. My favorite flowers are the scented ones - heliotrope, rose, hyacinth, lilac, and magnolia. I love an air heavy with the scents of spring, traveling on the mist of a spring drizzle.
- What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of spring? – Flowers. I love the flowers of spring as they bloom, and the way the evenings become warm and pleasant to be out in. I am also particularly fond of warm spring rainstorms, and the rainbows they bring. I have a vivid memory of walking home from school as a child with rain falling from the sky so warm it was like swimming through the air.
- Which spring-themed sim in Second Life is your favorite at the moment? – Spring is a particularly common season for sims, at least judging by flowers. I think my favorite of all time is Ode, with the season-changing sim Oubliette right beside it. Ode has been around for a very long time and passed through many hands, and I'm always glad when I see it's still around, even if the butterflies no longer give you jewelry when you catch them. I never got to meet Random Calliope, and sometimes I'm rather sad that is the case; from all accounts he was a lovely man.
