If You Go Down To The Woods Today.....


Remember to tip-toe quietly - for this is where the fairies live of course....in their little tree houses with their little wooden doors...


....and their little staircases....


...but I don't think anyone's home today...



You never know what delights you will find in the forest. Over the Bank Holiday weekend we had an afternoon picnic - yummy food, sitting on green grass, meeting up with family, children having fun, - followed by the discovery of the secret fairy houses. Perfect!

(we picnicked at Cannock Chase - follow the sculpture trail through Birches Valley and you will find the fairy houses!)

I used to love visiting Cannock Chase when I lived down there!
The fairy houses are so sweet....I don't think they were there when I was young and rampaging through the woods!
