Sun flower self picking


You saw a glimpse from the sun flowers on Monday's post. I picked the sun flowers from a field not far away. On Tuesday I went to get more and I also bought my camera with me.


The field is provided by the city and I know a few areas in Helsinki where self picking of flowers is free, but this particular one in my home city does cost. You are supposed to pay 1 euro per four flowers to one bank account. I doubt many pay, but I did. I love to support this kind of activity.

  2. You know, I usually don't like to see sun flowers in a home's garden (I feel like they are a bit disheveled). But seeing them in a field like this, beautiful. How lucky you are to get to go on these type of outings.

  3. Disheveled? I've thought more like disproportioned. But yes I agree, one or two sunflowers don't really cut it. A field full of them looks like that is how they are supposed to grow.

  4. I absolutely love sunflowers, especially if it is a field full of them! How cool is that you can just go there, pay and pick a bunch yourself.

    1. They are wonderful! Well it's more like pick and pay if you like :) But it's so cool to have these places.

  5. How lovely. We have to pay several dollars per flower out here for them.
