Wisps of Wisteria, in the Plantage:

As spring continues its annual emergence, the vegetation that adorns Amsterdam is once again revealing its true colors. Draping down from balconies and nearby trees–from a height laboriously climbed over many years–is the wisteria of this city. Wisps of white and purple flowers front backdrops of golden yellows and greens. As April dwindles and May nears, the vibrancy of these colors strengthens. Amsterdam is, after months of dormancy, coming back into full bloom.
