Thursday Doors

We recently took a stroll through Glenbower Woods, not far from where we live. I love it there at any time of year and it’s one of my favourite places to walk and take photographs.

As we crossed a bridge to a more densely wooded area, we could see lots of colourful miniature doors in the distance and I knew I just had to include them in Norm’s weekly photo challenge. The little ‘fairy’ doors were attached by tiny hinges to the hollows at the base of some trees.

The wild flowers were out in abundance and the light spilling through the trees cast the most wonderful shadows. Alas, my photographs don’t do any justice to the beauty of the place.


I didn’t come across any fairies but I managed to get a nice shot of a wee leprechaun who seemed to be contemplating which path he should follow.

Should he take the high road or the low one? We took the low one.
