Sunday Flower Picking

This is one of the many things I love about living in Germany! Farmers plant fields of beautiful flowers that are open for people to stop and pick. The best part is that they are on the HONOR system. There seems to be one of these fields in most Villages. The one we visited today is near our house which makes it really convenient to have fresh flowers!
They all have a sign posted with the flower prices.
The little yellow arrow is pointing to where you slip your payment into the can.
The kids were ready!
There are knives left out to help cut the flowers.
There were still a few sunflowers left so we went searching for a few to pick!
This Gladiola has a new home today!
My friend CeCe gave me this vase before she moved to Ansbach last year.
.....and it was perfect for these sunflowers!
I'm so glad we stopped today!!
All of our flowers only cost 4,80 Euro.

Wow - isn't that a wonderful system? I wish farmers around here would do the same!

How fun! I never got to do that when we were there. But I was always able to find cheap flowers at the grocery stores or markets.

That is one thing we have discovered especially with fruit and other items a lot of times you can get the cheaper on the economy.
