One of the things I hope to do in the near future is travel to Portland and get a tattoo by Kirsten Holliday. I've been following her on Instagram for the longest time. I think those of you who have followed me for a long time will instantly understand the appeal of these gorgeous botanicals (and that heavenly astral tattoo). Her work always reminds me of this beautiful David Attenborough book and in thinking about what I'd get, I've also spent a lot of time looking at the beautiful illustrations by Wendy F. Walsh in The Wild & Garden Plants of Ireland.
