Is this just the 1st Wednesday, Friday and Saturday after Pentecost Sunday?

MundaCorMeum:
Ember Days are 4 times a year: Lucy, Ash, Cross, Dove.  The Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday following the feasts of St. Lucy, Ash Wednesday, Holy Cross, and Pentecost.

They are observed in thanksgiving for the gifts of the earth (harvest) God has bestowed on mankind

(Edited for spelling).

For the particular group of Ember Days associated with Pentecost, yes, just the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday following Pentecost Sunday.  There are still the three other groups of Ember Days throughout the year.
