We’ll be sorted against any witchcraft activity here this year – I have never seen anything like the rowan trees around the village. They are dripping with berries, to the extent that some of the branches are dragging down to the ground with the weight. I’ve never made any use of them in cooking myself, though I believe you can make jelly out of them.
The deer like them anyway – as (not to put too fine a point on it) you can tell from their poo on the paths at this time of year.
I picked a few brambles today and it will soon be time for jelly making activities – must get all that done before I go off to Rome.
