Spring in Stockholm (but not in Reykjavik)

So, it seems like spring has arrived in Stockholm: the tree leaves are budding and the flowers are out in full bloom!



In celebration, we flew north to Reykjavik, Iceland yesterday.


The weather could in no way be described as warm. However, after seeing lots of kids milling about (rather than being at school), I googled public holidays and discovered that today is apparently the First Day of Summer in Iceland. Now I’m not sure whether to believe that we’ve fallen back or jumped forward a season.
