Stages of spring in Holland

John reports the following:

Watching winter slowly fade away in Amsterdam, I identified four benchmarks of spring.

First, the crocus pop up covering large patches in every park.Crocus (photo borrowed from the Internet)

This is followed in a couple of weeks by the daffodils.Daffodils

Then with the first warm sunny days people spring up on the decks of boats.Sunning on the deck of the boat

This is then followed by the symbol of Holland, the tulips.Tulips in Keukenhof April 2004
