Orchids and onions
Here’s another easy hit from Amsterdam’s flower market. There are signs everywhere that say “no foto’s” (Dunglish for “no photos”), so I took this one really quickly, while waiting for the tram. You can also pay much less for these books elsewhere.

I would be all over that market with corrective stickers if I lived there.
They got the decimal point right but not the word ‘more’? Gah!

These flower people make tons of money. They couldn’t care less about their translations. I once needed to buy bulbs approved for Canada, as they have to have a different sticker than those for the US. Several of them lied to me except for one shop, Aviflora. My two cents.

Some of the growers and auction people, on the other hand, are pretty good about getting things translated properly.
