In the small rural shire of Crooksterdam (english / crookstər dæm / ) 45 kilometers north-west of Goulburn there is a green field and in that field is part of the Kingdom of Plantae. In the kingdom of Plantae lives a family named Liliaceae, and the genus Tulipa.
They dress themselves in a variety of colors, but never pure blue. They are not too big, too small, or too bright; they are always just right, much like your favourite pair of slippers. Some say they mean perfect love.
When you give a red tulip you declare your love. They say the black center of the red tulip represents the lover’s heart, burned to a coal by love’s passion.
The symbolic meaning of the tulip flower changes with the color of the flower.
Pink: Pink tulips symbolize affection and caring
Red:Red tulips are a declaration of love and mean, “believe me”.
Yellow: Yellow tulips mean, “there’s sunshine in your smile”.
Cream: Cream colored tulips mean, “I will love you forever”.
White: White tulips symbolize heaven, newness and purity.
Purple: Purple tulips symbolize royalty and wealth.
Orange: Orange tulips symbolize energy, enthusiasm, desire and passion
Variegated: Variegated tulips mean, “you have beautiful eyes”
