A Midsummer Afternoon Faerie Frolic

Sunday, 1 July 2001,  Oakland Rose Garden

Led with delight, they thus beguile the way, and wander too and fro in wayes unknowne.
-- The Faerie Qveene by Edmund Spenser, 1596. Canto I.

Forty-five faeries, woodsmen, elves, wizards, along with a gargoyle and a brownie gathered on a summer afternoon for magic and merriment.

Faeries dance and faeries sing, round and round the Faerie Ring.
