To help us welcome spring, let’s treat ourselves to a bouquet of flowering branches. According to folk tradition, on 4 December, the feast day of Barbara, we should cut branches of the apple tree, forsythia, witch hazel, or cherry tree, put them in a vase and they will bloom in a cool place just in time for Christmas. The apple tree is the most widespread fruit species in Slovenia and is suited to a moderately warm climate with evenly distributed rainfall throughout the year. Unfortunately, old, indigenous varieties such as ′kosmač‵, ′bobovec‵, ′mošancelj‵ and ′carjevič‵ are dying out, but the folk wisdom that says: ‘One apple a day chases the doctor away’ still holds.
In addition to its nutritional purposes, many varieties are cultivated as ornamental plantings in parks and gardens, and also for the carpentry trade, as the wood of the apple tree is of excellent density and easy to shape and polish. The apple blossoms in small white, pink, or almost raspberry flowers, symbolizing beauty, innocence, and purity.
The tiny, delicate-looking blossom is extremely adaptable to the vagaries of spring weather and is thus synonymous with hardiness, resilience and perseverance
