Up in the Woods

Image result for little doors on trees

I went into our woods this morning to see how much damage the winds of the last few days and nights had done.  It was very slippy underfoot so I was carefully looking downwards to take care where I put my feet, I was surprised to see this.

It looks just like a little door at the base of the tree ....

... further along the track I came to this one.  Most definitely a door and two little windows.  It seems our woodland has been occupied by little people.


I hope the folk that live in this one have paid their Council Tax they seem to have put out their Wheelie Bins for collection.


Aren't they all lovely, I hope to meet the little occupants one day but up to now they have all been too shy to make an appearance.

  2. I had thought about putting some fairy doors on some of our trees for the grandkids to find, they are so sweet :-)

  3. I read an article about this earlier this month. The woodland trust said they are a lovely addition if applied to the tree properly.I believe they are worried the trees will be damaged. Nevertheless, I think they're cute. I went to the Isle of Man as a child and they are very 'Fairy' and 'Elf' minded people and very superstitious. This is right up their street.

  5. As long as not too many fairies end up living in a small area. Apparently some fairies had to be evicted for contravening planning permission in a wood near me here in Somerset as there were too many of them and some of their homes were not in keeping with their neighbours'!!!

  9. Very cute - kind of Alice like. I agree, let's hope the trees are not being damaged and that these stay an unexpected surprise rather than a common sight and a nuisance. Love your images.
