Trouble in Fairyland

It had to happen.

It seems there's trouble in Fairyland.

This magical spot, about which I've written before but have never named, is in danger of being overrun by fairy doors.

They started off tastefully.
Some were elaborate.
Some were birthday presents.
Then little things began appearing behind the doors, along with notes from visitors.
Excited children darted around, looking down at the base of the trees.
Soon, word spread far and wide that this was an enchanted wood.
People came from miles around, some of them adding new doors.
But now, the trustees of the wood say it's getting out of hand. They're concerned about the effect screwing the doors has on the trees. And they're worried the emerging bluebells are being trampled by eager little feet tearing around the woodland and straying off the path.

So, rapid development and doors out of keeping with this very special place are being deterred. 

I hope this coincides with the fairies themselves doing a bit of spring cleaning -  some of the doors are falling off their hinges and have seen better days.

Let's hope the media storm will die down and we can get back to...
That's about it.

  1. I heard about this on CBC news, just as you've told it. It's too bad when there's too much of a good thing.


Batten down those hatches, it's recycling day

It's blowing a hooley out there.  The wind is lashing against the windows and the dogs are play fighting in front of the Aga before...
