Highfield Hall Fairy Houses, Part 1

Now that I've finally joined the land of the living again, and since we had a rare sunny but dry day, I headed down to Highfield Hall in Falmouth to check out the fairy houses, which they do every other year, around the grounds and inside.  



I got there a little after 10 and was surprised to see quite a few people already there.

The artists do such a wonderful job and I wonder how some of them survive rain and wind since they are displayed from June to September.  


I promised myself I wasn't going to take a ton of pics but that ship sailed.  I shot 196, of which 195 made the cut.  How did I used to live within the confines of 24 and 36 exposure film.










This was clever, using blue hydrangeas for the water.







I don't know if the artist hand carved this but it's exquisite!


This is just one post of about five.

    1. They really are. I set out to take just one picture per house but the details were so amazing.
