Highfield Hall Fairy Houses, Part 2

Continuing on with the fairy was so hard to take just one picture when there was so much detail!

All of the vegetables were handmade from coloured clay.

Isn't this the sweetest little bed?

Amazing work!

That's it for the outdoor fairy gardens.  There were a lot of indoor ones as well and those are coming up in the next few days!

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.

At least with all the rain we've had some super cool clouds, especially at sunset.

 This reminded me of a mountain.

Snowy owl cloud

This could be a pig or a rabbit.

Thunder was rumbling in these, directly over my house.
