early bloomers


We haven't had much of a winter this year, and flower shops everywhere are already selling spring flowers, like these tulips. And yes, the price tag for the larger bunch is 75 francs (approx. $60)!

Gasp! $60 for a bag of tulips seems...well...high. Smells like someone's making a lot of $$.
Beautiful photo however...and that is free!

I think the 75 francs are for the big bouquet. The small bouquet (a dozen) are 20 francs. But still, that's a lot of money.

WOW! Sixty dollars! Are there many takers at that price? I suppose so or they wouldn't be there...

Lovely photo!

I know things are supposed to be expensive in Switzerland but that's ridiculous!

yup, welcome to Switzerland--things are pricey here. but surprisingly, I've sort of gotten used to it. I'm sure someone bought the 75 franc bouquet--it seems like the Swiss are just not that concerned with the prices of things...but as Ming pointed out the smaller bouquets were "only" 20 francs--which still isn't cheap.

That is so terrible. You may pay that to have flowers delivered here in the UK but never off the street like that. Pretty but a rip off.
