Details

In the North-East of Scotland in 1889, this wood was referred to as bird cherry, or hackberry (elsewhere they are also known as hag berry) and warned against using the tree’s wood for any purpose, as it was considered a witch’s tree.

An infusion made of the stalks of the berries was used medicinally to treat bronchitis and anaemia.

A tale recounted in an old English carol tells of how Joseph and the pregnant Mary were walking in a cherry orchard when Mary asked Joseph to pick her some cherries. However Joseph remarked unkindly that she should get whomever ‘brought thee with child’ to pick the cherries for her. The unborn Christ child then communicated with the cherry trees, asking them to lower their branches so that Mary could pick her own cherries, and Joseph was suitably repentant. Drawing of Mary and cherry tree. In the former Czechoslovakia it was customary to cut cherry branches on the Feast of St Barbara on 4 December and bring these into the warmth of the house to have blossom at Christmas. However, the tree of course flowers naturally at or around Easter, especially if Easter is late, and in England, in the Chilterns, some of the abundant blossoms were used to decorate churches at Easter.

Wild cherry folklore has unusual associations with the cuckoo, whereby the bird has to eat three good meals of cherries before it may stop singing. Similarly, a children’s oracular rhyme from Buckinghamshire says:

“Cuckoo, cherry tree,
Good bird tell me,
How many years before I die…“
…with the answer being the next number of cuckoo calls the singer heard.

So, you tell me. Is it a good, and blessed wand? Or a witch's brand?

This wand was carefully carved from a cherry branch gathered from my front yard.
it bears no decoration except some twine around the handle for a secure grip. And The bark it bore in life. No stains or paints were applied. The coating of pod podg sealer is smooth and silky, and perfectly brings out the depth and unique beauty of this wand.
