Germany is covered with fields where you pick your own flowers. BLUMEN the sign says, which means FLOWERS.
It's all a faith based system and there's a bucket you drop money into. AT this field there were two types of flowers, Gladiolen, or in English, Gladiolous, and Sonnenblumen, in English, the sunflower. Each 'stuck' or stem, in english, costs 0.60 Euro which is about 90cents (euros only). As you can see they made a beautiful arrangement for our still empty house (our household shipment still hadn't arrived yet - this was September 24, 2011.) And picking them together was a great opportunity for family fun and bonding! =)
I just wish I had taken a picture when the blossoms were fully bloomed. It was gorgeous!
‘Til next time… I’ll be living my life as a soldier’s wife. Sooo dreamy =)
