The inscription written here is engraved in granitunder the pen name Under the pen name Hugh MacDiarmid, Christopher Murray Grieve (1892-1978)

The rose of all the world is not for me.

I want for my part

Only the little white rose of Scotland.

That sharp and sweet - and breaks my heart.

Written under the pen name Hugh MacDiarmid, Christopher Murray Grieve (1892-1978) wrote these poignant words

Ian Wood, Berny, Don Sutherland, Lorenzo Kjell Salmonson and 4 other people have particularly liked this photo

Ah, I didn't see this! I liked the overall architecture, but the details seem to have been given a lot of thought, too.

Many thanks, Gudrun, John, Lutz and Gisela. I like this side of the parliamen. There are some lovely quotes chiseled into the granite, but round the back there is far too much concrete which doesn't look good.

Did I ever tell you, Amelia, about the time when I noticed a mistake on this wall? I emailed parliament, and they rectified the fault... eventually. I can see the amendment in your photograph.
