In Switzerland many of the farmer’s have road side fields where they plant flowers. Anyone can stop and pick their own blooms for a small fee. So I have to laugh as initially I had thought my gardener had only planted a few yellow bulbs in our garden bed in front of our house. Little did I know that when I came back from holiday I would be surprised by a whole bed of beautiful pink and red tulips and a border of lilac blooms. Now I have my own field of flowers to pick from – and am seriously considering putting up a sign saying that our neighbours can pick too! (Maybe even raise a bit of money for charity).
