Switzerland, Flowers and plants

Thought I have ended with Switzerland's post, but just realized I missed to share with you this special flower and plants that I seen in Switzerland.


1) This is real plants and I guess it can be found only during winter. Those sell here is either plastic or dried plants. I like this kind of plants.

- These were displayed in front of a bakery shop and hotel









2) This is the stronger flower I have ever seen, it is so tiny, no body, no branch & etc, it just simply grow on the ground...
