Last Monday, I started noticing little purple buds popping out of the ground. Springtime! I had been so worried about winter in The Hague and not only did it end, it ended ahead of schedule!
Spring also means that toads (or Padden, in Dutch) are coming out of hibernation. And they need my help! I volunteered to help the toads cross the road. Despite the toad hate I've been hearing from my co-interns, I'm happy to help.
