Not content with merely cultivating apples, residents of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley have long cultivated an apple culture that includes an Apple Blossom Festival each May with princesses, parades, and widespread celebrations. Postponed by pandemic again this year, it will return in 2022. And cheers to that, because few such events are more joyful and “few sights can top the loveliness of the valley’s delicate, frothy, flowering apple orchards every spring”.” – Living Slim: A Canadian Woman’s Way.
