Ah, The Sweetness Of Faeries

.
2012-04-22 Earth Day 1

St. Louis has a semi-official band of faeries. I don't know if they have a group name or formal organization but I see them every time I attend Earth Day or the St. Louis Renaissance Faire. (I sure get some good pix out there.) They have a queen, Etienne (first row, on the right). Sounds like a great job.

These faeries, however, have a bit of spunk. Maybe they are the faeries' friends and not card-carrying members themselves. They make you think of a Tolkien novel or the supernumaries in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. I'll catch up with them again out at the Faire.

It looks like there must be something in the water.

Okay, that's officially weird!

Yes, you are right, they would fit in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Some of them are fantastic!

Ahh! there's nothing like a little bit of fantasy Bob, keeps folk out of trouble and is good fun at the same time. Queen Etienne rules!
