Get to know the mother of the architect of the new Hanging Gardens of the School of Magic of Lisbon a little better.
Semiramis, Liliam's mother, was the founder of Babylon. She conquered Persia, Assyria, Armenia, Arabia, Egypt, and all of Asia. She married Prince Ara the Beautiful, the most charming of princes. After a long reign of 42 years, Queen Semiramis ascended into heaven as a dove.
The realistic portrait of the Queen below was created resorting to a telepathy spell.
Today, a unicorn was spotted in the Hanging Gardens of the Lisbon School of Magic.
The unicorn approached Sorceress Liliam, the architect who is building the gardens, and said: "May this garden be blessed!"
Several of the wizards wanted to take a selfie with the beautiful creature, but before any of them could come any nearer, the unicorn disappeared. However, before departing, the unicorn wished a Happy New Year to all of our students and made a rainbow appear in the sky.
In the image below you can see a drawing of the unicorn created by the Sorceress Adozinda, who also sighted the legendary creature. This art was created with nail varnish, watercolors and brush pens.
The new construction of Hanging Gardens is ongoing and the unicorn's visit gave Liliam further encouragement for her arduous devoted work.
You can still play a game with the unicorn at this secret spot.
The Lisbon School of Magic has carnivorous potted plants that are looking for a new owner. These flowers will be your best friend, faithful as a dog, but unlike a dog, they leave no smelly gifts on the sidewalk for you to pick up. And they are also cheap! All they need is a few drops of water, plenty of sun and an occasional little head pat to make them happy.
However, while carnivorous flowers are eternally faithfully loyal to their owner, they can also be dangerous to strangers. For this reason, only sorcerers who pass the test can take one home. To prevent the carnivorous flower from biting strangers it is essential to call it by its name. Attend the training session of this class to learn how to call each carnivorous plant by its proper name.
The Lisbon School of Magic is looking for wizards willing to adopt magic flowers. The plants are enchanted and respond to their name. So, to bring a vase home, you need to know the name of the specimen.
We are offering common, rare and ULTRA rare magic flowers that will give you the following benefits:
Common Flowers - Spread an exquisite fragrance in your house.
Rare Flowers - Purify the environment and keep germs, microbes and aerobic viruses that contaminate the air in your home away. These flowers guarantee a healthy family and are better than vaccines, in what concerns keeping the magic flu at bay.
ULTRA Rare Flowers - Exude positive energy and pacify family discussions or disagreements between friends.
Gardener Liliam celebrated Halloween by planting giant pumpkins in the new hanging gardens
of the Lisbon School of Magic. There are so many pumpkins that Liliam was able to make a
pumpkin jam jar for each wizard. You can taste this delicious nectar of the
Plants love being talked to and, even more than that, listening to good music. To stimulate the growth of the flowers in the new hanging gardens of the Lisbon School of Magic, Sorceress Liliam invited idol Vê from the BTesse group and diva Ourea to act for them. You are also invited to this show.
The singers will give signed posters to the fans. Click here to get your exclusive poster before they all run out!
The conflict opposing the mutant flowers and the natural flowers continues in the flower beds of
the Lisbon School of Magic. Natural flowers accuse mutant flowers of being false flowers. The mutant
flowers became so sad that they refused to drink water and are slowly withering away.
Even flowers can be a little bit sour to each other!
Some of the natural flowers are whispering that genetically modified mutant flowers are not real flowers
and therefore have no place in the new hanging gardens of the Lisbon School of Magic.
You don't believe that flowers are capable of something as vile and despicable as bullying?
Well, in case you're suspicious, our security cameras have captured shocking evidence and definitive proof that
you can watch HERE.
Sorceress Liliam has already gathered
ultra rare and
epic magical flowers for her garden.
Despite this, Liliam is still unhappy with the variety. Something is missing! However, what can possibly be missing
when each and every specimen from the face of the earth has already been collected?
Therefore Liliam joined forces with Sorceress Fedra, a renowned specialist in occult biology, to increase the
existing variety with genetically modified flowers. The two magic manipulators are in the middle of intense research
at the laboratory.
Can you spot the differences between each photo of the laboratory?
Yesterday, an intruder tried to steal one of the ultra rare flowers from the new garden
of the Lisbon School of Magic! To make sure our future hanging garden is safe, sorceress Liliam
will plant epic flowers at strategic locations.
Carnivorous flowers are also useful for any wizard. After all, the one who is afraid buys a dog, but even better than that is
buying a carnivorous flower. These epic flowers have a vast reputation for their aggressiveness and courage and will faithfully
protect you. Fear your enemies no more, for the carnivorous flower will gladly, and without the slightest hesitation, give its
own life to protect the owner, standing between you and any hostility!
Unlike dogs, these flowers do not need to be taken for a walk in order to exercise. Also, no more running after your dog with
a plastic bag to collect every smelly gift it keeps leaving behind! In addition, carnivorous flowers only require the sun and a
few drops of water to stay healthy. The sun, when it rises, is free for everyone, and water is cheap. Notice how much you'll
save on dry and wet dog food!
The carnivorous flower is the optimal solution to all your security problems! Like the dog, the carnivorous flower will be
your best friend, a friend without all the inconvenience and expense of dogs!
You can find several epic specimens of these flowers here in this flower bed.
During her extensive research of the best flowers for our school's hanging gardens, Sorceress Liliam found
a plethora of common specimens and an exquisite
selection of rare flowers.
The new flowers now presented to our dear students are beyond rare, they are ULTRA rare. The only place
you can admire these elusive rarities is at the Lisbon School of Magic, right here in
this flower bed.
To this day it remains a mystery who built the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. These gardens are one
of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. A manuscript was found that finally solves this millennia old mystery.
You can read all about it here.
This game is part of the historical research of the final game that we are developing for our beloved wizards :)
Today, I will show you the drawings I made for the character of our new game.
This is the very first drawing! What do you think about it? The pointed ears and the sharp bone structure at the shoulders indicate that the character is not totally human. Our girl is wearing boots and holding a shovel because the new game will be all about gardening, nature and flowers.
And this is the second version of the drawing. I do not like this version so much. The girl’s waist is not convincing and for some reason those shorts are not very stylish. Initially, I thought about dressing her in shorts because this would be appropriate gardening attire for working under the sun. Is there anyone out there who is a gardener? Am I thinking correctly?
And now I present you the third version. The hair looks better and the face is more delicate. I like it better. Furthermore, it seems more practical that a gardener should tie her hair, instead of letting it float freely in the wind. I kept insisting on the shorts and again I kept disliking them. I maintained the flowers in the shirt because I reasoned a gardener would favor such an aesthetic. But, by this time, the left leg started displeasing me, so on to the forth version we go!
In this forth drawing, I apologize for having sacrificed the convenient shorts to the glamorous dress. I like the face more and more, the waist is more elegant and the bones of the legs seem to be in the right place. And I also gave her a pair of shoelaces.
No drawing is complete without colors, so here is the next version. As this character is not exactly human I can afford more freedom. The hair can be green, really green, no merely dyed green, so green as the plants she cares for and the skin is somewhere between brown and yellowish, like the bark of the trees.
And, finally, this is the end result! The drawing may be finished, but the creature still needs a name. It must be an ancient name, because although her appearance is deceptively young, this being has millennia of existence. It also needs to be a name that is somehow related to nature and linked to the continuous renewal of life. What name do you think suits her best?
