There are Fairies in these Woods and Meadows



The year has gone round already, and once again it was time for Chagford Filmmaking Group to begin work on another project. To see more about how this fun project evolved, do check out their website. Elizabeth Jane Baldry , celebrated harpist, is the driving force behind these films, and this year's fairytale was 'The Laidley Worm of Spindleston Heugh'.


All three children were involved this year - even my small son, who was bribed with ice cream to dress up as a Puck - like imp and dance around with the girls. They had great fun doing it, and I got to sit in the shade of the ferns by the pool while they filmed. We can't wait to see the finished film.



The fairy photos were taken, not by me, but by my friend Carol Amos, whose daughter Ely filmed my daughter doing a hilarious 'Vegetable Tour' of our garden! I have been struggling all evening to upload it here, but so far no luck. I'll have another go tomorrow!
