Another Saturday and another crop of faerie houses have appeared in Annapolis Royal. This week the faerie folk have colonized the O'Dell House Museum, the old train station and a tree in front of St Luke's Church. They have actually become a bit more declarative by leaving a couple of tiny signs that read "Do you believe in Faeries". I was interested to learn that they are using the older, and honestly more interesting, spelling of faerie rather than fairy as I had used. I have decided to go back to the previous posts and amend the spelling.
Once again there is a mixture of hanging and land based houses. They have also created a festive circle of mushrooms in front of the museum. Until I hear differently, I am going to refer to this as mushroomhenge. I was also impressed with the house built in front of the museum. With a large shed dormer on the roof and an entry portico featuring columns and a pediment, the faeries have clearly been seeing and adapting at some of our traditional Annapolis Royal building styles. While the origin of these houses remains a mystery, they are fun to find on Saturday mornings.
All for now,
