A Bit of History
In ancient times, people suspended nuts, fruits, and petals in honey. The kind of honey may have varied and include date or fig syrup, which were considered a kind of honey, as well as honey from the bee. The almond tree is the first to flower in the spring and came to represent good beginnings.
And behold, the rod…brought forth buds, and bloomed blossom, and yielded almonds. Num.17:1–8
