For thousands of years, cherry blossoms have been held in the highest esteem in Japan and China. Farmers viewed them as harbingers of a bountiful rice harvest, and aristocrats held cherry blossoms as symbols of both feminine beauty and warriors' bravery. Many artists have immortalized the cherry blossom in paintings, poetry, and embroidery. Because the blossoms last for only a short time each spring, they're thought to reflect the fleeting nature and fragile beauty of life.
