They only seem to live for about two days, so you have to get your Instagram in quickly.

5. But you know you're into proper springtime when you see the tulips.

And Cambridge gardeners take tulips very seriously.

6. Even if you're stressed with work or with studying, you can't help but stop and appreciate the trees putting on a show.

7. In sprintime, the sunsets get better.

This is why you should really spend less time in the library.

15. It starts getting dark so much later, so you can stay late in the evening on Jesus Green.

It's not too cold if you give yourself a nice beer jacket.

16. And it's finally nice enough to study outside.

Even if "study" actually means "eat ice cream".

17. You can relax with a drink outside a pub with a view.

To cleanse the palette for all the beer tasting you're doing.

22. So even if you've got a hundred things to do, at least you can do it surrounded by flowers.
