The changing seasons each bring with them their own unique range of flowers. These flowers are a reflection of the changes that happens both in nature and our moods as we adjust to the offerings of a new season.
You can find a variety of seasonal flowers any time of year that will make a unique arrangement to brighten someone’s day, especially in spring.
When spring is in the air, it comes with a wide assortment of flowers to choose from! Spring symbolises the time of rebirth, hope and love; the most common colours associated with spring are generally white, yellow and pale blue. Therefore it would make sense that the Izami flowers of spring are tulips, daffodils and hyacinths.
The South African Spring Time
Spring in South Africa is a spectacle to behold. Spring Day in South Africa is celebrated each year on the 1st of September. Gifts of beautiful flower bouquets that welcome the coming of spring, and of course the warm summer months ahead, are often given around this time. The atmosphere is abuzz with joy and happiness and the colours are bright and fresh.
One of the most glorious events in the South African spring season happens in the Northern Cape Province in an area known as Namaqualand. During spring, this arid semi-desert area transforms into a quilt-laden field of wild flowers not likely to be seen anywhere else. Flowers such as aloes, daisies, lilies and perennial herbs are amongst some of the 4,000 different species that spring to life during this brief period of time. Thousands of people, including a number of photographers, flock to Namaqualand for this beautiful occasion.
