My fatherr has an ochard in which he likes to get creative. While he cannot come on here to tell you about it, due to a language barrier, he did agree to let me post some of his endavours.
So that is what this post will be used for, posting pictures from my fathers patch of land.

Are they captive, or do they just live there?
Nice little sprites, excellent imagination and lovely work. What a lovely dad you have - a dad to be proud of! Grin

They have bells and apple blossoms - but the door should be open, don't you think?

Probably best to keep the little blighters locked up - you never know what sort of mischief they might get up to otherwise...

More seriously, I do like the whimsical look of the garden. Any more piccys to come?

Yours,
Miranda.

I assume the bells are there to act as a warning system in case of escape attempts.

as you wish


this one is sitting on a beehives landing ground/entrence . my father has a few beehives himself that he enjoys a lot.


the sign says "effe ruste. koffie en gebak. zelf meenemen" which would translate as "a short rest, coffee and cake if you bring it yourself"

 It has the whole northern  European mystical woodlands vibe.  Like what you would find  Widdershins  around the mountain

Some interior




 

The chicken is an old rooster called Jantje. Jantje is so old he can't crow without almost choking afterwards, and because he is losing feathers he gets cold very easily. This is why he likes to sit by the fire.

as you can probably see there's an old stove. This my father uses to cook meals when he is working on his land and doesn't want to go home for dinner. In summer we use the large outside firebowl to bake bread, heat cans of soup and cook eggs.

That all looks absolutely delightful; I expect your family have made some wonderful memories there.

It looks like a place to inspire the imagination.

New pictures made :3 dad has been working on a growing dome made of willows braided while alive. The bright sun ruined most of the pictures though, so here is one picture that shows the area just next to the dome
