Group of children, some holding sticks decorated with flowers and ribbons.

Is the seated girl in white in a wheel chair or is it a form of mobile throne and the group of girls around her are her attendants? There is something more fluid about this group, it looks less organised that some other photos of children. Is it the remnants of some custom that the children themselves organise, rather than a school or church one? or is a part of a May day celebration? The hedge and trees are not bare nor are they fully in leaf so early spring might be indicated.
