Splendour in the Grass


What though the radiance

which was once so bright

Be now for ever taken from my sight,

Though nothing can bring back the hour

Of splendour in the grass,

of glory in the flower,

We will grieve not, rather find

Strength in what remains behind;

In the primal sympathy

Which having been must ever be;

In the soothing thoughts that spring

Out of human suffering;

In the faith that looks through death,

In years that bring the philosophic mind.

~William Wordsworth

Aqua Globe


Last night I bought a new plant for the office – an ivy with a new pot to plant it in and water globe. I wasn’t crazy about the color of the globe (I wanted blue) but it ended up working out perfectly with the green of the plant. I’ve never tried water globes before and the reviews online are mixed so I’ll let you know if it works like it’s supposed to.
