I've nearly missed the Blackberry picking again this year, I will have to get my act together and go for a forage in the hedgerows! although it is not wise to pick them after 10th Oct Devil Blackberry Day as the Devil spits on them. When the Devil was kicked out of heaven he fell into a Blackberry bush and has hated them ever since, Not that it is likely that I will meet Old Nick wandering around the countryside in Somerset but  perhaps I will meet a few of the imps and elves that inhabit the bushes, they will catch the unwary's hair and clothes in the thorns when you try to pick the fruit.

Autumn is here!

The Autumn Faerie reproduced by kind permission of the artist Elizabeth Andrews.
'Come said the wind to
the leaves one day,
Come o're the meadows
And we will play,
Pu on your dresses
Scarlet and gold
For summer is gone
And the days grow cold'
Traditional children's song
The seasons are changing and the evenings are drawing in, the Faeries are gathering for the apple picking in the west country, presided over by the Apple Tree Man guardian of the Orchards.
To ensure future crops the last few apples are left for him and the pixies.
 The magical properties of the Apple tree were recognised by the Celts who used the wood in their Samhain festivals.
'Faeries and Folklore of the British Isles'

The Witches Market in Glastonbury  (1st Oct ) is a great event for anybody who is interested in all things magical, I will be attending and showing my artwork, cards and  prints of Faeries and Dragons.
Please attend  if possible it's great fun!
