I love the pick-your-own flower fields around where we live.  Simply find a spot to park, select your bouquet (bring scissors or a knife), and pay on your honor.  I couldn't pass up the sunflowers...three for one Euro.

Trafalgar Square

Giant ship in a bottle
Trafalgar Square, London, July 2010

I love Trafalgar Square.  It sounds a pretty cliché thing to say, given its prominence as an icon for London, but there's just something about it.  During our recent jaunt back, we found ourselves there visiting the National Gallery (again) to see Van Gogh's Sunflowers (again).  But even amidst the art of the masters, the Square holds its own.  On this day, the fountain was sparkling, the skies were a brilliant blue, and this ship was sailing off to ports unknown.
