The small farming community of Payson is surrounded by apple orchards. Everyone's summer job in high school is working in the orchards. So when the LDS Church decided to build a temple in Payson, they used the apple blossom as a motif throughout the whole temple. We also incorporated strands of DNA in the windows to represent the flow of knowledge that is imprinted in all living beings.
