Searching for spring.
The road along Singelgracht from Kookjesbrug toward Leidseplein is lined with fantastical flowers in the summer. I made a point to go there now so I would have a "before" picture for contrast. Huge hollyhock type flowers grow along these vines in the warmer months. It's still very wintery here, but since the cafes are opening their terraces for the year today I tried to find little signs of spring about. At the bottom of these vines are little snowdrops and crocus flowers, but all and all the foliage is still pretty bleak round these parts.
