Spring snow in Amsterdam

One of my favourite part of the spring season in Amsterdam is the spring snow time. I’m not talking about actual snow (although the weather is so cold right now that it wouldn’t be a surprise to get to that). I’m talking about the elm trees scattering their seeds, which create a snow-like effect while flying over the city, dancing in the wind and eventually setting down in rustling piles along the streets. 

There are over 75,000 elm trees in Amsterdam, more than enough to create the snow effect all over the city. I went for a long walk in the city centre on Saturday, enjoying the beauty of spring, the explosion of green and blooming flowers, even the changing weather. The city is coming back to life and that’s a great thing to see. It’s one of the best times of the year to visit Amsterdam — or to live here!
