The PEAR BLOSSOM… a lovely, white 5-pedaled flower that blooms in early spring, but lasts for a short period of time.
Because the Pear Blossom blooms in spring, the Pear Blossom has come to symbolize Renewal, Hope, Spring and Health; and the purity of its white pedals has given the Pear Blossom an honored place in Bridal bouquets. There, too, is the lovely tradition of giving Pear Blossoms to a friend to symbolize Enduring Friendship.
The Pear Blossom was also used as the badge of the English Worcestershire Yeoman Cavalry from 1859 – 1956 to symbolize Home, Bravery and Community Support… and each Yeoman sent to fight in the Boer War was given a silk Pear Blossom from Lady Dudley to pin to his hat.
The Pear Blossom’s rich history dates back to prehistoric times. Why not take a bit of this history and bring your kids into it today. Head outside to find some Pear Blossoms just waiting to enhance your lives with Hope, Health, Love of Home and Community, great Friendship and Love.
If your Pear Blossoms have passed, create lovely drawings and celebrate the symbols of the Pear Blossom… or find illustrations or take photos of the Pear Blossom and place them in special places for the Hope and Love they bring!
