Hot faerie frolics....

The beginning of the day and the wings are spread wide and ready for a day of music, faeries, and whatever other creatures that may roam the farm.

It was 89 degrees today. The weary band mates make their way across the bridge to the next destination for playing tunes. I almost hate to brag about the joys of being a folk musician, but, I have to let you know we found a spot in the shade under a lovely tree - right behind the spot-o-pots! Ha! Take that Joan Baez!

We finally couldn't take the heat anymore and with me starting to have signs of heat exhaustion, we packed up around 5pm and headed for home. It was an hour short of close time, but, I didn't want to get really sick.

How this young girl didn't fall over from the heat surprises me, but, she has youth on her side.

Back again tomorrow with wicked heat and thunderstorms in the forecast. At least they would break the heat for a while...
Now I'm off to rest and recoop for tomorrow.
I didn't have much time to shoot pics today. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to take a few and share with everyone.


  1. Looks like a wonderful day. :)
    We had 80s here, too.
    Hope you have a good time tomorrow!

  2. What is going on with the weather? It barely broke 60 here, which is much cooler than average for this time of year.

    Maybe you could put a good work in with the Fae to do something about it...

  3. I can't believe the temperatures you are having - that is really hot for May!

    Great photos - I expanded them for a close up - is that your band in the second photo?


  4. Jeanne - the top photo is the back of me with my wings on and the band mates are the middle three folks crossing the bridge in the second photo. My husband is the first guy and the only one smiling..
