The tillable land in the mountains was terraced to make room for growing all kinds of crops - fruit, vegetables like corn and lettuce, and flowers of all kinds. We passed some men carrying huge baskets of cut hydrangeas - sorry I didn't get a photo of them but the flowers were really pretty purples and blue.
