An especially interesting appearance! A few days after discovering the Field of Dreams fairy door, the same (or similar) door has appeared at the multi-generation daycare facility, Generations Together, in Dexter.
Inside Generations Together are many murals of the Dexter area by artist, Jan Stebbins, signed: "Ruvido • Stebbins" (Jan's hypenated name)
One wall is titled:
"Judge Samuel Dexter House"
With a depiction of what is now known as HIstoric Gordon Hall.
This is the same field where I saw a fairy door with no building attached...
or...a "dettached" ? fairy door, just a few days prior.
The rustic fairy door is flanked by baskets filled with grasses.
The grass seems to be both decorative & functioning as a bit of camouflage. Neither this door or the one in what I called "the Field of Dreams" is what I would call an "urban fairy" fairy door. One is QUITE rural. I think, considering the rustic design, that these are some sort of transitional fairies. They have a solid-ish foot in the world of field fairies as well as one in the human realm.
