Photos taken recently show plum in full blossom in the snow in East Lake Plum Blossom Garden,Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province.

Situated in the eastern suburbs of Wuhan, the East Lake Park, is the largest open space in the city. The lake here is huge, six times the size of the West Lake in Hangzhou and divided into different thematic areas including the Listening to the Waves area, Mill Hill, and the The Poetry Composition Pavilion.

The mild temperature and abundant sunshine here foster the rich plant resources in the East Lake area: 3.18 million plants of 372 different type, among which "the orchid in spring, the lotus in summer, the sweet-scented Osmanthus in autumn and the plum blossom in winter" are the most renowned. There are over 80 species of bird and fish here too, of which the Wuchang fish is the rarest and the most famous.
