THE ARRIVAL OF SPRING


Traditionally the Spring Festival marked the end of the worst of winter and heralded the beginning of a new season. Spring brought with it more clement weather and so it was a time for planting and growth. Colours replaced the greys of winter as flowers and plants ‘spring’ into bloom symbolising renewal and positivity.

FLOWERS AND BLOSSOM


Vibrant displays of flowers and fruit blossoms can be seen in abundance during the Spring Festival, many of which have symbolic meanings. For example, peach blossoms represent romance, prosperity and growth; narcissus represents good fortune and prosperity, and orchids are symbolic of fertility and abundance.
