Flower Markets, as a tradition in Canton, are popped up every year before Spring Festival. Different flowers and plants indicate different wishes or sign. For example, Kumquat plants with Kumquats similar to small citrus fruits, means your wish of a prosperous year ahead. Peach blossoms mean love and romance.
