    I had a small house on a small swamp island last map, so I landscaped the hell out of it.

    My animals and crops were all in a small backyard so I made the rest of the island look like a flower garden and a leasure spot. Beds of sunflowers and roses, wheelbarrows, grills and picknick spots. I made bootleg willow trees by growing regular oaks, then modifying the trunks and bringing the leaves down to make them look droopy.

    On the side of the island I made my own private little beach. It was regularly invaded by huge slimes but made a good fishing spot all the same. Im weirdly proud of the little streams I made to one side with the sugarcane. Its meant to look like wild reeds.

    There was some extra space around the back of the island so I turned it into a berry bush thicket. It was kind of nice to imagine myself going back there with a basket every now and then to pick berries. Too bad minecraft dosent have jam.

    Round the other side of the island was a connecting path that lead to a flower patch behind the backyard. It also leads to a small wine cave.

    In contrast to the garden, the house and yard are much less detailed and more functional. I still tried to keep it cozy looking and make the space look good though.

    My favorite part of the house was the small greenhouse area between the smithy and the garden. I guess I just like being sourunded by plants, lol.

    A final note about the rock formations around the island. They were the first thing I put down and I think they make the rest of the area work by providing a natural looking divide to certain parts of the island. Il miss the place.

  2. Berries + Sugar + Bottle should equal to Jam (Mojang needs to do this lol)!

    Lovely little home there :D
