The closest Abbotsford neighborhood is Matsqui Village, which is located on the Matsqui Prairie floodplain to the east. Glen Valley, a rural Langley neighborhood, is located on the floodplain below to the west. Bradner used to be a component of the District of Matsqui, which merged with the City of Abbotsford in 1995.


Thomas Bradner, a pioneer who homesteaded in the region in 1895, is the name of the town of Bradner. Bradner was a station on the florist abbotsford bc interurban line from New Westminster to Chilliwack following the extension in 1910, and a post office was established there in 1912. The crops in the region are predominantly floral, especially daffodils, a legacy of the many farmers of Dutch ancestry who contributed to the establishment of that area's agricultural business. Bradner is known for its yearly display of blossoms and is almost entirely agricultural in character.


Mr. Fenwick Fatkin, a new immigrant from Vancouver, wanted other nearby farmers to display their daffodils in 1928, and this was the start of the renowned annual Flower Show. Only 10 different varieties of daffodils were on show at first. There are now more than 400, some of which are still of the Fatkin kind.


The yearly May Day procession is a noteworthy event in the Bradner neighborhood. Each year, a kid in the sixth grade is chosen to represent the month of May. The first May King was chosen in 2009. In 2009, Hunter became the first May King to be chosen. Since custom was not being followed, this caused a lot of debate in the neighborhood.


Bradner also publishes a bimonthly local newspaper. Every month during the months when school is in session, The Bradner Barker is given out. It often includes contributions from Bradner Elementary students.


Ancient Egypt is where flower arrangement first became popular. As early as 2,500 BCE, Egyptians started using flowers as decorations. They often employed highly styled arrangements for processions, funerals, and simply as table décor. They also frequently put cut flowers in containers. Egyptian painted wall decorations and carved stone reliefs both include depictions of floral arrangements.


Flowers were chosen based on their symbolic importance, with a focus on their religious significance. The lotus flower, also known as a water lily, was revered by Isis and was often used in floral arrangements, along with roses, delphiniums, narcissus, palm trees, and papyrus. The ancient Egyptians also wore flower garlands and placed them at the graves, and a variety of different flowers have been discovered in their tombs. Additionally, blue scilla, poppy-flowered anemone, and Iris sibirica are used in the arrangements. In tombs dating from the fifth century B.C. through Cleopatra's reign, Egyptian wall murals have been discovered. lets keep reading...
