Today my family finally managed to get to the woods and go on a fairy house hunt among the trees. The sun came out and children were swinging from the monkey bars and a tethered tyre. It was great to get some fresh air after feeling poorly all week and I’m sure the walk did me some good.
Here are few photographs of some of the fairy doors/houses we found tucked up against the tree trunks. They weren’t that easy to spot as they were well spread out. Occasionally we found fairy stickers on the trees and even some pink glitter, but these were all decoys! As super sleuths, we had to retrace our steps to uncover all fifteen ‘hidden’ doors.
We also were entertained by the natural wildlife – the wood was full of squirrels scurrying about and nibbling at the nuts in among the fallen leaves. Their antics were amusing, as was the time I saw a gorgeous robin sitting so still and silently on a wooden fence that I thought it wasn’t real on the entrance to the woods! It flew off at the sight of my camera before I could get a decent picture of it!
