Thursday Doors – January 21, 2016

I’ve heard of a treehouse, but never thought that a door to a treehouse would actually be on the tree itself.


Who do you think lives behind this door? How does the postman deliver the mail through the letterbox? Maybe it leads to a magical world that only allows some of us to discover?

        1. I reread all of the Enid Blyton books a few years ago and nearly had a fit about how sexist they were especially the Famous Five.
          “Come on Dick lets go on an adventure while the girls cook tea”
          “Actually Julian why don’t you cook tea and the girls go on an adventure”
          Its amazing because I certainly didn’t see if when I read them as a child and I wonder whether its because I didn’t realise or connect it, because my Dad did more cooking than my mum

  1. What a fabulous find Hugh, I see I’m way behind everyone by suggesting Owl and Winnie the Pooh but it does have that look to it or perhaps a friend of Little Grey Rabbit? You’ve made us all nostalgic for fairyland whoever lives there!

    1. Thanks very much, Jane. Yes, my photo seems to have created lots of inspiration around Fairytale land. In fact, Colleen over at Silver Threading, says she may use the photo. She’s currently writing a novel all about Swamp Fairies.

  2. Hugh, that door brought out the romance in me! Think it’s a back in time secret postbox. You’ll find handwritten love letters in there. Unable to show their love publicly, they spent years writing poems & notes of their undying love! Elizabeth (aka Chryssa)

        1. Me too. I’m going back to Wales (where the photo was taken) soon. I’ll take a ladder and give that door knocker a hard knock. I’ll be shocked if anyone does answer the door. In fact, I’ll probably fall off the ladder!

  3. Oh I love fairy doors like these! Growing up in the Suffolk countryside, I imagined all kinds of fairies and pixies living in the hedgerows and in trees, with their own front doors and teeny-tiny windows! Great capture Hugh, what a wonderful find, I wish I could live in that world 🙂 xx

    1. Yes, it would certainly be nice to live there sometimes, Sherri. This was the first of its kind that I have ever seen. I have heard of doors at the bottom of trees before, but never up a tree. I hope it is a fairy door. Maybe if I go back I’ll capture the moment the fairy opens the door? I hope he/she invites me in for tea 😀
      Thanks Sherri.

      1. Yes, it is very unusual, delightfully so. I’m sure if a fairy lived there, she would invite you in for tea and a lovely, buttered scone too. I would, if you turned up at my door Hugh, as you well know 🙂

  4. I think it’s the wise owl he who knows everything in the land This old apple tree can tell a few stories of it’s own. I dare say it has had scrumpers and lovers and creatures and if it could talk… well many would be shocked, inspired and flabbergasted. That is what I think. What I think is irrelevant; ” but it would be wise” said the owl “To remember who did. X
