No man is an island

No Man Is An Island :

No man is an island,

Entire of itself,

Every man is a piece of the continent,

A part of the main.

If a clod be washed away by the sea,

Europe is the less.

As well as if a promontory were.

As well as if a manor of thy friend's

Or of thine own were:

Any man's death diminishes me,

Because I am involved in mankind,

And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;

It tolls for thee.

John Donne

De hellebolussen doen het goed dit jaar, en de ingebouwde plantenbak op de patio met lenteklokjes primula's en blauwe druifjes ontpopt zich  niet onaardig.
Nu Engeland nog..
