They relate to Ogham markings, I wanted to publish a photo of a flower I only know as ‘flame’, which grows wild on roadsides and all over Achill island and in areas of the North-west but did not know the correct name for it.

My favourite word image from ogham is a ‘r’, Ruis for ‘redness’ I published a teeny picture of the markings beneath the post: Focail Le Peigí Rose which is somewhere on the blog.
