Tired of squirrels munching on your nuts? Give me a guitar (and a trowel) it's time for some guerrilla gardening...
Slipknot - 'Psychosocial' (2008)
Apparently, according to the short sighted Neanderthals at my work, gardening is for 'fruity old farts', oh but they are so wrong. What they don't realise is that it is so Rock N Roll, I wage chemical warfare on molluscs, rub mud on my face, dig holes, walk into spider webs, play with worms and I get to grow peculiar exotic plants, like the Voodoo Lilly. I've been growing this particular plant, which is indigenous to parts of the Med, for about 5 years but frustratingly it's never flowered, until now. I've really been looking forward to seeing it happen as not only is it a striking flower, which sadly only lasts approximately 3 days, but more importantly for it's apparent scent which mimics rotting meat. Especially charming as this attracts flies and the like to a pollen party on it's pistil, and does it smell, one sniff had me reeling, the odour staying with me all day, psychosocial indeed! I remember reading about some gardener saying that it was akin to putting several dead mice in a plastic bag and taking a whiff after a few days....I think I am more worried about how he'd actually know that.
