While tulips and crocus (crocii?) mark the coming of spring in most places, in Newfoundland, on Canada’s east coast, it’s icebergs and dandilions that herald the end of winter and the start of travel season that sees thousands of tourists visit the island to view the parade of icebergs drifting south on the Labrador Sea current from Greenland and Baffin Island. Although a hazard to shipping and a threat to inshore fishermen they are a boost to the local economy as a travel and tourism draw.
