First appearance of plum blossoms signals early spring in Moc Chau
As we move into the middle of December, the first signs of spring are already beginning to emerge with white flowers starting to pop up around the plum gardens of Pa Phach village in Moc Chau, Son La Province.
During the final days of winter when the entirety of the Moc Chau plateau remains cold, forests of plum and peach blossoms are already beginning to bloom.
Plum blossoms are well-known for entering their bloom period in the spring. However, locals state that if the weather is warm enough in late winter then it is possible for the plum to enter a state of bloom.
