Where Lin Hejing(also known as) Lin Bu, lived in seclusion during the Northern Song dynasty (967 - 1028) as a calligrapher, painter, poet, plum tree appreciator & planter and raiser of cranes;
a true scholar of his time, who appreciated the beauty of mei blossom.
One of his poems is titled: Small Plum Tree in my Mountain Garden.
Shan Yuan Xiao Mei 山園小梅
Which in one translation reads:
" When everything has faded they alone shine forth, encroaching on the charms of smaller gardens, their scattered shadows fall lightly on clear water, their subtle scent pervades the moonlit dusk, snowbirds look again before they land, butterflies would faint if they but knew, thankfully I can flirt in whispered verse, I don't need a sounding board or wine cup. "
