The Bloke is a talented photographer and often travels off with his camera to try and find new and interesting perspectives of our local area. We’re very lucky – we live practically next door to two beautiful parks, teeming with British wildlife, and when he gets back I’m always interested to see what he’s discovered.
One set of pictures from the other day caught my eye – he’d spotted something at the bottom of a tree. It was a little fairy door… I have no idea as to who created them, but the child in me instantly thought of Alice in Wonderland. Beautiful. I wonder who lives at 136?
He’s very kindly given his permission for me to use the image…
Thanks! It felt appropriate for Easter for some reason, although I have no idea why!
It works and that’s all that matters!
I love those fairy doors 🙂 How lovely to find one in the woods!
I didn’t even know these existed – it was a lovely surprise!
Bahaha! I’ve got an image of them sitting round a table with little wine glasses… It would be grey squirrels round here though
Grey squirrels are notorious chablis drinkers.
Bahaha! Yes, I’ve heard that too…
I love this, obviously 🙂
Haha! I thought it might! 😉
I thought Hobbit door. What is “British wildlife” ? Are there animals that only live in the U.K.?
Grey squirrels, hedgehogs, that sort of thing…
I wonder if your grey squirrels are different than ours. I’ve got a garden full of them and my house bound cat watches them from the window all day. Hedgehogs! Now you’re talking!
I think your squirrels invaded our red squirrels and drove them off… I saw a black squirrel in New York – we don’t have those here at all…
And Happy Easter Suzie!
And you my lovely! X
Clever British wildlife. Clever Bloke.
Absolutely! He’s so talented but lacks confidence unfortunately…
Confidence is a rare commodity. It seems to be possessed by the Donald Trumps of the world. Perhaps the Bloke is better off not being too confident. 😉
Yeah you could be right… I’d rather he have a bit of faith in his own abilities though, he’s really talented!
I thought it was a great photo. 🙂
Thanks! Me too – you should see some of the pics he takes, incredible! We’re off to Scotland in May so I’m looking forward to seeing what he does!
A good partnership. Scotland is gorgeous!
I’ve only ever been to Edinburgh but this is a little cottage by the sea, so it should be lovely!
Reblogged this on Kate McClelland.
Thanks for the reblog!
It’s blue so could be a Birmingham City player.
Possibly – I don’t know of many squirrels that play for them though?
Well, you’d have to be nuts, anyway.
Best I could do 😎
I wonder where the other 135 are? Have a great Easter Suzie, Blessings Joy
Ooh I hadn’t thought of it like that! I might have to go on a hunt myself!
Oh, what a cute little door, I love it. Fairies must live there for sure 🙂
Aw so lovely. a friend of mine makes these doors, they are so sweet. Reminds me of brambley hedge!
Really? That’s really interesting!
This is really cute. 🙂
I utterly ADORE this! We don’t have anything like this over here, Suzie! I have always loved magical and mystical woods. Here’s to The Bloke for finding this brilliant Fairy Door! Happy Easter to you both!! Cher xo
Thanks Cher – and to you!
Now, I want to find it!! He is so lucky!
I think there’s more – I’ll have to go and have a look when the weather gets better…
OMG I love this!! firstly wicked photo Mr. Suzie. But secondly WICKED photo – my mind has just raced off at a 1000mph with a load of story ideas! SOOOO cute.
Ooh I’m so glad – I’ll let him know!
I don’t think we have fairy doors over here. At least, I’ve never heard of them. Great picture, thank your Bloke from me 🙂
Thanks! He says you’re welcome – we’re going to go on a mission and see if we can find some more at some point…
Absolutely magical. I’ll be looking for fairy doors on my side of the pond. Wish me luck. Or come help me search.
Ooh if only Sharon! You’ll be the first to know when I win the lottery haha! Let me know if you find any!
We don’t have the elven mythology that you Brits have, but I’m not above initiating a bit of wee magic over here. What fun for my grandkids to find.
I took some photos of fairy doors that we found in a nearby woods. There were so many of them it must have been a class from one of the local schools that put them there. So cute.
I didn’t even know that these things existed… What a lovely idea!
What a great find, Suzie. Reminds a little of this door that I found.
Thanks Hugh! I wish I could take credit for it – I did try and have a look for it when I went running yesterday but I found myself being more focused on breathing instead haha!
lol, I’ll have to check out and see if I can find any fairy doors here in Wales.
Ooh you should! Let me know if you find any!!!
I will. That’s if whoever is behind those doors lets me out again. Just think, I could be held prisoner by fairies. 😀
I have so many comments here… I’m just going to behave
Perhaps Wimbledon got to be too busy for the younger set of Wombles and they moved up there.
Haha! They’d have had a massive trek to get here from Wimbledon!
We used to have one. Mr. toad lived in there with his wife.
A brilliant image Suzie. I love these doors because of the stories you can make up for grandchildren about who lives there and the stories they can make up too. Funny though, I’ve never actually caught anyone coming or going from them.

Thanks David – I need to set up a little CCTV camera on it and see what happens!
Ooh yes! I think they’re on Netflix now too!
I’ve just checked and it’s definitely on there…
Ooo you da Moomin mama!
Not quite sure how to take that Steve…
Take it like a Moomin?
Erm… You should be proud of me that this response is mature…
