Tall (Tree) Tales

We are lucky enough to have lots of tall trees which make a small but thick wild border to the garden. Sometimes it feels like a little woods all of my own...

...all mine except for a little sharing, as around the garden you will meet other folk...
Like Sir Ollie out for a stroll,
or a greedy Squirrel twosome looking for snacks on the birdtable,
or a woodpecker who prefers to lunch on the lawn than at a height...

and just last week I noticed someone new...
can you spy them? Look closely... the base of a tall tree is a tiny patch...

...and a tiny path to a tiny door...

...where fairy folk do live!!

I overheard the green woodpecker telling his friends, the Robin and the Jay that these fairies are the common bottom of the garden types and have been living here long before I ever did... since the invention of gardens in 1500 BC*. Until, as they hid another set of keys they happened to hear one of said big people speak of a magical portal called Etsy, they remained unseen by the big people... but as soon as they returned to the tree, their tiny computer (made of acorns and spider web wires) took them to NothinButWood where they found the most darling front door to their tiny home and they just had to have it!
They are so pleased with their little door, they really want to show it off and don't mind they are now 'seen' fairies one tiny magical bit...
