Servez - vous

.

The new NGO Women Wage Peace had a meeting in Meitar a few nights ago.
After the lectures each of us was given a flower for International Women's Day.


It reminded me of  when I volunteered at Grandchamp, next to les grand champ.
For a few months every year one farmer would plant a huge field of flowers. 
The Swiss had a Help Yourself option, based on the honor system.
Pick as many as you want, just put 3 Euros in the brown metal box for each bouquet.


Here's a nun selecting flowers for the chapel and the refectory. 


Good memories . . .

They're lovely flowers, Dina!

Each orange flower is large, detailed, well designed and gorgeously coloured. Human designed objects aren't nearly as impressive.
