Not a very aesthetic-looking arrangement but fresh zinnia cuttings from my small flower-patch adds a splash of colour to the corridor. I have never used this plan- ter for what it was intended ; it's got drainage holes at the bottom. I've always placed a glass or a jar in the planter to display blooms or foliage. Even though I'm from Bamboo country, it isn't always that you get to buy something as sturdy and as spacious(?) as this!
Glory be to God for dappled things- For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough; And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him. Gerard Manley Hopkins
The first flowering shrub I planted on our land
Every flower is a soul blooming in Nature.-Gerard De Nerval
Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself? -Henry David Thoreau
