Blumen zum Selberschneiden

When I first came to Germany I was surprised to see so many fields of flowers. Even better is that you can deposit change in a box and pick your own flowers. I was delighted that people here were so honest and that the bright colors on the landscape were so striking.

I still get happy when I see these fields. Often they have gladiolus and an array of other beautiful blooms like ranunculus and sunflowers.

Here are a few photos from today. The storm clouds were starting to roll through, so there wasn't too much time to spend outside. Tomorrow should be a bit better.

At least there was a little bit of time for people to pick some flowers and brighten up their homes during this never ending rainy summer.
