"The Office"

I think I've mentioned before that my office on campus is a hole-in-the-wall with six desks, and that only myself and an ecology grad student, Todd, are ever there. Well, we've been spending a lot of time there recently, and we've decided that something must be done to brighten the room.



I've been elected "decorating committee" and I started by bring some gerberas up from the greenhouses at ENH. Notice how I've kept the nerdy science vibe going by putting them in an Erlenmeyer flask.



We've also added Buddhist prayer flags and some plants, and I hope to add some paintings/posters to the wall soon. It won't be the prettiest room ever, but at least it will be livable. I'll keep you updated with the progress. I think Barry Zito is going to have a new home there too.

The flask is fabulous! How does a non-scientist get one?

I am learning how to actually use your blog. Sorry I've never posted a comment before. Beautiful photos as always. You really have a great eye.

Thanks guys!

Cookiecrumb - I don't think you can buy them separately, but I did find this, if you're really interested. Maybe you could split it with someone?

Ok that link didn't work, but if you go to Fisher Scientific and search Erlenmeyer flask, then it's not hard to find small sets of them for about $40. It's a little steep, but I don't know if you could find them cheaper, maybe ebay?
