Easter Flowers

 

Easter is full of many customs, traditions, and symbols borrowed from Christianity and the ancient world. The religious origin of Easter finds representation in Christian imagery, while most people are familiar with the brightly colored eggs and hopping bunnies that come to us from the spring festivals of antiquity. But, a common thread connects these symbols – all represent fertility, new life, and rebirth. With their soft, delicate petals and sprouting young buds, it’s no wonder Easter flowers are also fitting emblems for this time of year.
