Animated - Flowers + Bumblebees
Spring is almost here, so I made a few more recolors of the wild flower and added the option to spawn bumblebees.
Besides the four default recolors, I've added an additional eight recolors. Five of them, 1 blue (Cornflowers), 2 white ( Daisies) and 2 red (Poppies) can be perfectly used to create beautiful looking poppy fields.
The three others are 2 yellow ones, which can be used as daffodils and a purple one for which I tried to make it look as a clump of violets. As violets are much smaller in real life, you can use the open bracket key '[' to make them smaller if you want to.

Normally Sims have to walk around flowers in game, but as I thought that making it able to let them walk straight through a field of flowers would look great too, I made a walk-through version too.
To make the process of making larger fields of flowers or flowerbeds as easy and fast as possible, I enabled repeat placement and made them placeable without having to worry about other objects in their way.
To create a poppy field like those on the images, you also need my Jungle Adventures Walk-Through Grass. The second recolor of it has a nice fresh green color which can be combined with these wild flowers.

Another thing a lot of people might find interesting too, is the possibility of spawning bumblebees.
The only thing you have to do to activate this visual effect, is clicking the flower object and clicking on the 'switch on' interaction. You can use the same method to switch the visual effect off.
To see the Bumblebees effect in motion and some more examples about how to make nice looking poppy fields, take a look at the video!
