Simploring 2019 (80) Dogwood by Cica Ghost

Wednesday, July 17th, Cica Ghost opened her newest installation “Dogwood” and I had the opportunity to visit the very same day at night. As always Cica provided a quote for the sim, related to her creation and for the visitors to think about:
Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Andersen

Dogwood by Cica Ghost is a meagre island, there’s no grass and no leaves, no flowers and no sun. There’re just some bare bushes, some hills, some “Cica-ish” buildings peek through the foggy environment – one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

Close to the landing point is the first dog, that you’d expect given the name of the sim. Of course it is a big dog, as almost all of Cica’s animals are tall compared to the human visitors. You can sit on the dog near the landing point and I tried that out. Too bad, the dog didn’t start to carry me around, hence I had to continue exploring Dogwood by Cica Ghost on foot.

The dogs are not the only animals you find at Dogwood by Cica Ghost. There are even more birds. They all sozialize and stand in groups or are at least two stand together looking at eachother. While some of the dogs live behind fences, the birds do have more freedom. I walked into the buildings. They contain the possibility to sit and they are decorated inside with simple drawings or with simple furniture. You will also find some hanging chairs at several of the bushes. These can also be used to sit and to watch what is going on at Dogwood by Cica Ghost.

The tallest building can only be accessed by a large stair. At it’s top sits a dragon overlooking the whole sim and guarding a flower. Did I say, there’re no flower at Dogwood by Cica Ghost? Ok, there is just this one (and you can buy it and support Cica by getting it).

Anything else? Yes! Cica already hinted to me that there’s a cat hidden at Dogwood by Cica Ghost. And I visited it. The cat lives on a small island just next to the bigger main island and it looks a bit lost. Nonetheless the cat made me smile and hopefully I made her smile too.

The quote “…one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower” is fitting quite well to Dogwood by Cica Ghost, but nonetheless you have to make up your mind on your own. For me it was fun to see the newest “Cica-ish” animals in their own little world and I hope the the sun will shine for them soon again, Thank you Cica for another nice and thoughtful creation.

As Cica’s sims don’t stay available very long, I recommend a visit soon
