Flower Fields

A common sight at roadsides in our area, and many parts of Germany in fact, is this:

Pick your own flowers!

You can stop by the roadside, take one of the little knives hanging on the sign, and walk into the field to cut sunflowers or gladioli. There’s a big drum to put your money in – just 60 (Euro) cents per flower.

Some fields also have dahlias, and in the last couple of years I have also seen a field in spring with tulips and daffodils. Our local field is just down the road, and the flowers are planted/sown in stages, so there are fresh flowers from June to September!
