Spring!

Spring has come to Amsterdam!

Tulips line the streets…

… and everywhere you look there is colour and vibrancy!

I must admit the concept of cured herring seems more palatable while the weather is warmer too. Though I still feel no inclination to indulge.

Flower boxes full of tulips are a guaranteed smile inducer for me!

And though you’ll never get Amsterdammers off their bikes …

… it is nice to see the jackets getting a little less bulky!

And any day now there’ll be new chicks!

I can’t wait! I’ll have to keep an eye out in the parks!

  1. It’s true that the farewell to (or less-frequent wearing of) bulky jackets and the appearance of tulips are enough to make me smile and make it feel like spring, and summer, is finally coming!

    (not ready for the herring, either, but it’s nice to see the stand is open!)
