The Significance of Cherry Blossoms

            Although it is the beginning of Spring, there is still a wintery chill in the air. However, it is comforting to know that in a matter of weeks we will be shedding layers and sitting outside to soak up the warm Spring sun. If you look past the lingering cold grey weather you will see small blossoms that are starting to protrude out of the ground. The trees are expanding, pushing new leaves out from their branches. Spring is blossoming if you look for it.  Instead of focusing on the last hints of winter, lets focus on the beauty that is yet to come.

            Cherry Blossoms are on the verge of bursting open and with that we will feel the full power of Spring. The blossoms will fill the air with a light, sweet scent and the landscape will be dusted with a pink hue. For me, Cherry Blossoms invoke a feeling of warm breezes that washes away all of the coldness that built up in our bodies and homes over the course of the winter.

            Not only are Cherry Blossoms easy on the eyes and nose, but they hold quite a lot of symbolism. Cherry Blossoms go back hundreds of years in the Japanese culture. They represent more than just a beautiful fragile flower. In Japanese culture  Cherry Blossoms represent a form of beauty that is life itself. They see the fragility in the flower and it reminds them that life is precious, and short. The delicate blossoms inspire one to take a minute in the day to stop and look at what is growing around you and recognize the beauty those small buds hold. Before we know it, it will be summer, then fall, and soon after that the snow will cover the landscape. If Winter is especially hard for you, don’t fret, we offer beautiful Room Dividers covered in Cherry Blossoms that will make Spring last all year long right in your very own home.
