Toxic Garden Rezzable

Danger! Wear armband! Beware ant-bots!
The Toxic Garden is beautiful--but deadly to avatars.

Wander one of the most interesting and exotic gardens in SL--but at your own risk. The plants have accessed the grid and now want to keep human life away.

Apparently people tried to settle this area around time of World War 1. However only a few traces of that attempt at establishing a utopia remain. Only the plants with sumptuous flowers and enticing fruits are here to tell the story of the Toxic Garden.

Random notes on possible graphic novel:
