Strange things are afoot!

This week will be mostly devoted to'uncovering' all the fairy haunts on our hill. I managed to get some work done yesterday and found a hobbit door which was sneakily hidden under a patch of long grass.

Tonight after dinner I was delighted to find several little pixie houses had sprouted on the old stump under an old gooseberry bush.

Uncovering all these unbelievable finds is quite contagious. After a little bit of photoshopping I've turned a snapshot taken by my son into this...

... and am bound and determined to convince him that it wasn't a regular old rabbit he captured a photo of, but was a jackalope!

I bet he wavers for about 3 seconds then rolls his eyes at me.


  1. I wonder if these are created in public spaces, such as parks etc, the reaction of who may find them! SO MUCH FUN!

  2. Love the photos! Imagine...being so fortunate to have so many wee folk living in your hills and gardens, lol. I found your blog on one of those "click here click there" blog exploration days and I'm so glad I did! I'll certainly be back to visit again :-)


  3. Well jeez...I though Jackalopes were only indigenous to Texas.

  4. I just absolutely love what you do. It is so whimsical and filled with dreams and possibilities.

    Thanks again for putting a hugh smile on my face!

    Have a great week!
    Take care,

  5. Marvelous! Such an enchanting place! :0)
    And tell your son that I have seen a Jack-o-lope! When I was young I saw a taxidermied Jack-o-lope. So it must be real!
