As they say, spring has sprung, and with the change of seasons comes beautiful and aromatic spring flowers. Each season has an effect on our plant life, but spring is perhaps most exciting – it is a time of renewal and new life, a time when nature wakes up and the flowers bloom. This is the season of vibrant flower arrangements and colorful, fresh cut bouquets.
This year, the celebration of Easter Sunday takes place 6 days after the Spring Equinox (first day of spring), and sending a bunch of seasonal flowers is a great way to tell someone that you are thinking of them; or to decorate a holiday dinner table. Popular spring flowers include tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, daisies, roses and chrysanthemums.
One especially meaningful flower during this season is the white lily. Tradition tells us that white lilies sprang up from the ground as drops of sweat from Jesus Christ’s brow hit the ground; their further significance embodies virtue, hope and life – all of which represent the essence of the religious Easter Sunday celebrations. Therefore white lilies are found on the altars of most Easter services; they are also given often as a heartfelt gesture of faith on the holiday.
Flowers are representative of everything we love about the coming of spring – new life, vibrant beauty, a rainbow of colors and fresh, new hope. Whether your loved ones live here in Evansville, or across the country, the gift of a spring or Easter floral bouquet is a classic tradition.
