A few weeks ago, while walking Henry past our local Gemeindehaus (town administrative offices), I noticed a field of flowers in full bloom. Rows were labeled by flower names, photos and a prices per "stiel," (stem). Small box cutters hung from nearby cash boxes along with a comprehensive price list. Putting two and two together, I determined it was a cut your own flower field.

And also this sign.
|"selber schneiden" = "cut yourself"|
|"Kasse" = "Cash Register"|

I've been back twice more for fresh flowers. And now that it's on my radar, I've seen several other "cut your own bouquet" fields while roaming the Swiss countryside, along with similarly unmanned fruit and vegetable stands. Add this discovery to the list of things I love about Switzerland.
