Additional details: This Chinese Plum blooms in my back yard every February. In China, Plum blossoms are considered a symbol of Winter and a harbinger of Spring. Because it blooms in Winter, the plum blossom came to symbolize perseverence and hope as well as beauty, purity and the transitoriness of life. I'm sure the Honeybee was as delighted as I was to see this tree blossom in all it's glory.
