I recently was awarded an academic prize (this one), and several people sent me flowers. They’re pretty rare in my room, which usually is graced only by dusty books, coffee mugs, and one sansevieria. Now there are no less than four bouquets, and because I have only three vases, I have invented a new use for a wine cooler.
So thanks to Aad, Ab, Anita, Anneke, Ansika, Dirk, Ellen, Ettie, Eric, Frans, Fred, Jeannette, Karin, Marjo, thanks to Edith, thanks to George, and thanks to Nora! I had to take this photo with my cellphone, so you cannot see how beautiful these flowers really are, but believe me – they’re splendid.
