Fairy Houses at Highfield Hall, Pt 1

After I left Spohr Gardens, I stopped by Highfield Hall to check out the fairy house exhibit, which runs through August 30th.  It is so incredibly worth it!!!!!  The houses were AMAZING. There was so much detail in each house that I shot over 200 pictures.  The complete album is on Facebook and it was really hard to choose which ones to feature.  With each house I kept saying, 'No my god!' and 'You have got to be kidding me! This is just too adorable!'


 I looooooved this ship!

This one appeared to be crocheted with a lace glove.

An agate slice for a window!  And look at the tiny cord of wood!

The library was another one of my faves.

This one had some great stained glass windows.

Spohr Gardens, Falmouth

After two days of crushing heat and humidity, the air cleared and cooled and I took the opportunity to jet down to Falmouth to check out Spohr Gardens.  It was well worth the trip.  I was there super early, around 9, so I was the only person there and had the place to myself. It was very peaceful.  

Old millstones

And anchors

The property is on Oyster Pond.

The lower paths hug the shore of the pond.

The upper paths go through a very shady and quiet wood with beautiful views.

Spohr Gardens is located at 45 Fells Road in Falmouth.  It's free but donations are accepted (and the place is worth donating a couple of bucks!).
