If spring was a feeling, which would it be? Love, craziness, rejuvenation, maybe? What do blossoms symbolize?
To answer these questions we have decided to take a look at various cultures that inspire us through our students.
For the Japanese, a blooming tree (especially the sakura) represents the transience and fragility of life. A person lives their life in the same way a sakura’s petals fall — beautifully and quickly.
In Celtic culture, blooming apple trees represent motherhood and maternal instinct.
In Armenian culture, there are lots of meanings attributed to the blooming of nature, flowers, and trees (especially apricot trees). There are also songs and poems about the tree we call the Armenian symbol — the apricot tree.
Armenian folk sayings describe the phenomenon and attest that “Until the bud goes crazy, it doesn’t bloom”.
