Over Christmas, while we were staying with my parents, we went for a day trip to Trentham Gardens.(Stone Road, Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. ST4 8JG is the address if you want to visit it too.)

The garden is full of brilliant Fantasywire fairy sculptures by the amazingly talented Robin Wight.  They were all handmade out of wire and each have their own little magical characters.

The day we went it was very foggy and this gave the whole garden an enchanted appearance. We walked round the whole lake and I think we managed to see the majority of the fairies but I’m sure there was a few tucked away in the mist that we didn’t manage to spot…we’ll just have to go back for another visit! 🙂

I got a Windows Tablet with my Christmas money and I wrote a bit more of my next book, The Nocturnal Fairy, (see more books) while we were away so it was just perfect to take some time out to visit some other fairies.

Here’s a few photos I took of the fairies while we were there but if you get the opportunity, please check out the real thing.
