    Background: In Denmark, the first day of Spring is traditionally Mar 25. But this year it came early. On Mar 20 - a day after the Spring equinox -Copenhagen was bathed in warm sunshine.

    In the famous Tivoli gardens - laid out in 11843 - work was in progress to prepare the famous Chinese Theatre for the coming season. Near the statue of the Danish composer H.C. Lumbye, gardeners were busy tending the flowers.

    At the Zoo, many of the animals were out in the open for the first time after spending the cold winter months indoors. The birds were singing happily and only the Polar bear seemed to think that all was not right with the world.

    Bellevue Beach - only a few minutes from the city and crowded to overflowing in the summer - was deserted, except for one enthusiastic girl. Ready for a swim, she tried the water but found it was far too cold, and quickly put on a coat over her bikini. Meanwhile, in the city square, people strolled in the warm sun, thinking of summer days to come.
