One of the most wonderful things about Holland is the flowers. The polder soil makes it very easy for them to grow beautiful flowers here year around. Because they are so easy to grow and abundant, flowers are very cheap at the weekly markets and in the train stations. Imagine picking up 20 long-stem roses from the florist for about €7 or 10 sunflower stems for €5 or 10 gerber daisies in vibrant colors for €3...and because the stems were cut that morning or the late the afternoon before, the flowers last for 2-3 weeks in a vase!

Why does this make me so happy? Because it means Matt often brings me home flowers!
