Pros and Cons

Pros

Cons of Living in the Netherlands

The weather is a bit crap (of course, that applies to lots of places).

Pros of Living in the Netherlands

You can get flowers to brighten up a gray rainy day for next to nothing. I got two bunches of roses for €5. Hit up some of the flower stalls and you can get an even better deal. Flowers are wonderfully inexpensive here.

  1. Isn’t it great how cheap flowers are here. When I hear friends back home talking about getting flowers from their loved ones and I think of how expensive it is, I grin inside haha because we can pick them up anywhere for dirt cheap.

    I always love having them in the house, but so rarely bother to get them. I’m going to go get some tomorrow, if I don’t blog about it, give me shit! haha it means I got lazy and didn’t bother 😛

    • I know! I always forget to get them, despite how cheap they are. With the lousy weather today, though, I figured it was a perfect time to brighten the place up with some.

  2. I love love LOVE how cheap the flowers are here!! I’ve never had so many beautiful fresh flowers to chose from in my life!

    What a wonderful way to brighten up what would otherwise be a grey day..I think Im going to pick some up at the store today aswell. I need to hurry before all the bread is gone! LOL

    • Bread seems to be the one thing that our grocery stores here don’t seem to run out of, although I’ve heard it’s a problem elsewhere. Good luck getting both the flowers and the bread!

    • Hah! We’ve got a gorgeous flower market just a short walk from our house, but inevitably I forget to go on Saturdays, so I end up getting flowers from AH when I do remember. Oh well, they’re still pretty!

    • We certainly get tons of cheap tulips here, obviously, but I’ve been impressed with the variety of flowers to be had cheaply, even in the grocery store. Now if I could only get the cats to stop chewing on the rose petals …
