Simploring 2018 (74) Meadow Rose

I got a hint from Annie Oh (anniebrightstar), who runs scoop.it SL Destinations, to have a look at Meadow Rose. I found time for simploring Sunday, August 26th, and visited it.

Meadow Rose overview

Meadow Rose is an adult homestead sim, owned by Rye Falmer. Later, when I met Rye after my simploring tour, he told me that Kitty Templeton (kittytempleton) is co-owning Meadow Rose. Their main estate is Templeton Cove Estates & The Lake House and compromises 16 sims (American Lakes and Wilderness Themed Estate, Residential & Recreational, Light Sailing, Riding & Hiking Trails). I saw a small part of Templeton Cove when I visited it during my Halloween tour 2016 (read here).
Rye loves to landscape at Templeton Cove Estates & The Lake House but he’s not good with managing renters, that’s Kitty’s part together with someone else. Meadow Rose was originally embedded into Templetom Cove Estates, but it dosent go with the theme of the other sims so Rye decided to create it remotely again. In addition Meadow Rose is adult which goes against the family ethos of templeton estate.
I’ll take Templeton Cove Estates on my list of sims to explore.

But back to Meadow Rose. At the landing point you can join the Meadow Rose group. From there you can walk a real nice trail, which takes you around the island along the shore. I turned left and began exploring on foot. I passed a farm and came to a church with a graveyard. I visited the church and continued walking along the shore. The trail is just beautiful and you get lovely views. The landscape is natural, there’re lots of trees and flower fields, everything fits to perfection.

After some walking I reached a bay with a sailing boat anchored there. At the shore is a small shipyard for smaller boats. After staying there for a bit I continued my tour, I passed several nice places to sit and cuddle or to simply enjoy. Then I passed some ruins and saw a dandelion which you can use to make a tour flying over the island. I didn’t do that though. After passing the ruins I came to a park with a pond, another place just to enjoy. There’s also the possiblity to dance. Shortly after the park with the pond I reached the landing point once again.

But there’s more if you don’t take the trail along the shore but go to the inner island. I took the trail to the farm which leads further to a quite big manor that looks very British. Inside the manor is furnished luxurious and is a collection of antiques, of hunting trophies and of curiosities from all over the world. There’re tapestries and oil paintings decorating the wall. To sum it up: it looks very Britsh, maybe like the home of an Earl or a Duke, maybe of the Duke of Meadow Rose *winks*. I also had a look into the cellar. Surprise! The upper nobility has guilty pleasures and fetishes. I have to keep in mind this manor.

Impressions of Meadow Rose (5) – the farm and the manor

Outside of the manor is a garden. Again it looks really British. Everything is neat and you sense that there are gardeners who care that every single flower is at the right place. In the garden I met Rye Falmer, the owner of Meadow Rose (the Duke of Meadow Rose?). We had a really nice chat and he told me about the above mentioned connection to Templeton Cove. We talked about his and our place and he might visit our island one day or even join our party.

Meadow Rose is another hidden gem in Second Life and I admire how perfectly it is made. Rye has really a talent to make this place look like a piece of a British paradies. Thank you for sharing the place with the public, Rye!
