The Púca came early

The Púca came early: Monday 25 Sept 2023

Well … it wasn’t long after Éanna’s visit on the equinox that  I went to gather more for ink  and I found the berries gripping to their briars soggy and wizened after the rain, crushing under the pressure of my fingers, making my skin bloody and prickled.

So not Samhain this year but a couple of days after the Equinox that the Púca came to spit on the brambles.

This Autumn the birds and the beasts will be feeding on the hips and haws to keep them going into the Winter
