Did you see the tulip flower from the magazine, or from pictures ? I strongly suggest that you should see the real scene. Only the incredible word can describe it. Can you imagine one or two acres field full of perfect and bright, red and yellow flowers? This was the first time I saw real tulips, and also the first time I knew how many colors of tulip flowers there are. In my remembrance, I only knew pure red, yellow and white colors, but some colors mixed together in one flower are even more beautiful, including white edge and red middle, yellow and red mixed up... etc.
That day, only one thing let me feel a little upset. Some people hopped from one row to another row among the field. The people likely thought it was a shortcut, but it also damaged the flowers. It is not fair to the great farmer who provided the paradise to us. Except the small spot, that day is the wonderful day for my family. Thanks for the diligent people. You paint the world in beautiful colors.
