He won't thank me for this..He hates having his photo taken at the moment. But this is my youngest, taken at Elvaston Castle at the weekend, when him and I spent the most lovely afternoon together. Just us 2. It was a Wood Festival celebrating all thing wood-like. Organised by Derbyshire County Council, it was amazing, great fun and FREE!! We made wooden propellers that changed direction by MAGIC! we watched craftsmen and women at work, saw the Green Man, made badges, burnt initials into wooden pendants..made a broomstick that I can fly down to school with at any given moment!..cooked bread on an open fire. It was lovely and very special to have a bit of time with my Woodsprite come Flibber-de-gibbit known to some as Jack.

  1. Wow, that sounds fantastic Julie and what a wonderful time you must've had! I especially like that cheeky little wood sprite you found - but he looks strangely familiar...

  2. Your own little green man ..a wood sprite, indeed!
