One of the things I miss when away from the Netherlands are the flowers.
Anywhere you might be in this country, there is an abundance of beautiful, fresh flowers and buying a bunch every week (or even more often) is a habbit of the Dutch. I don`t think there is a house in Amsterdam with an empty vase on the table.
I`m not saying people don`t get flowers elsewhere, just that in the Nethwerlands this is a very cheap and natural thing to do, no special occasion required.
This gentleman in the photos below is a simple example illustration of the above. 🙂
