Apple Blossoms in Clarington
People often ask how we came up with the name for our flower shops. When we opened in 1983 the apple blossom was recently named the official flower of the Municipality of Clarington and we chose to name our flower shop after that. Apple blossoms can be seen in the spring throughout our agricultural municipality which thrives on the apple growing industry. This is a picture of a golden crab apple tree in bloom in my backyard. Over the summer tiny crab apples develop and they continue to ripen in fall but will remain on the tree over winter. It is a joy to see the cedar waxwings devouring the fruit in the spring when food sources are scarce.
