Vangi Cathcart, has interesting information about "Plum Blossom Tree": The plum blossom represents winter because in Asia it often blooms in February, before spring arrives. In colder climates it's not unusual to receive a last snowfall while the plum blossoms are in full bloom. Plum blossom personifies austerity. A plum blossom painting usually includes a main branch, a secondary branch, flowers and small branches. The sumi-e artist uses the side stroke, the pulling stroke , and the smashing stroke. The main branch is painted first, then the flowers followed by the smaller branches and the stems connecting the flowers to the branches."
