Commonly found in Europe and Asia. Dog rose is a bushy plant with pink or white flowers and thorny branches.
The area has added dog rose into its vampire lore. Gathering the petals and throwing the blooms and at a vampire will force it to stop and count them.
You can also string the blooms up and wrap the garland around a coffin to keep a vampire from rising.
Great article as always
Thank you, Peter
Nice to see something fresh that could show up in a vampire tale or two.
That’s me digging up fresh stuff for vampires… they did tired of the old stuff. 😉 lol
I like it. I think they have a lot of mileage left in them, but some realistic changes are good.
I like to lean away from the overused, but I’ve had people get upset, because they don’t know anything other than the tried and true.
I think avoiding sparkly day walking vamps is a good idea. However some research can provide intriguing and terrifying ways of dealing with them. If anyone can do the research, it’s you.
Sparkly no, day walking yes. Some can even keep a human diet as long as they have blood regularly too, NO ONE knows they’re vamps. Thank you. I love my vampires and researching them, I always have. Mom was telling me the other day I started loving them much earlier than I thought. The first time I was a vampire for Halloween I was 6 and I was one every year after that. lol
Or tried and tried. Sometimes its very false, not true. 😉
