This is an interesting topic, so I bookmark it by writing here

I have been wondering what GLOWS were - I thought they were some sort of stones or biodirt - like the ones mined during world war 2. What I remember from the books, maintaining the glows was hard heavy work which was constantly being a necessary task.

It would be nice to search all the books to find all the references and try to compile all about glows in one message. The wonder and research into Anne's books never ends

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."
