Gardener’s wonderland

It does not have to be a touristic spot to visit. I love walking in the flower shops / greenhouses and this one looks so special. Viherkäine OY has design products for home, antiques, flowers, trees and sometimes there is a café corner.

A local couple with a gardening background, Kari and Kirsi Sjöroos , found a nice onion field in the Rauma city center. They bought the premises and turned the greenhouses into a shop in 1988.  They opened a company called Viherkäine OY, which means “green” in Rauma language.

They offer gardening services to private and business clients. Their machinery clean the city roads. The retail side is just a side business and hence it does look quiet in there. I hope they get more customers now that the post packages can be collected from there.

And I just walk there and wonder like Alice in Wonderland. Where am I? Is it ok to walk here without buying anything 🙂

You see two sculptures of the local Rauma artist Kerttu Horila in the following gallery.
