‘Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning’. ~Lydia M. Child


The tattooed gardener now has a new website (www.thetattooedgardener.com) and to mark this occasion, I thought I’d publish a new post!

I had originally thought of doing a ‘Rock Garden’ post completely dedicated to Motorhead as the first but decided to keep it simple. Especially now that the format of writing a post is slightly different and with my impatience with most things technical, I thought I would keep the stress levels low…….along with the swearing! So with this post I have kept the writing to a minimum and I will let the photo’s do the talking. Some of these photo’s have been taken by youngest daughter Enya.

Oh by the way, the Motorhead post will be coming shortly, I have a whole list of plants with a connection of Motorhead song names ready to go!
