Seeing the blooming Sa Dec flowers, I look forward to Tet more than ever. If plum blossoms are Tet flowers of the North, apricot blossoms are Tet flowers of the South, yellow raspberry clusters are  flowers in Western.

The flower clusters are not placed right on the ground is because the dry land is not enough to meet the demand. Planting in an area with available water is convenient for irrigation and large area to grow lots of flowers.

The uncles and aunts will sit on a small boat, down the water, while scooping water right below to water the flowers. At harvest, flowers do not have to push on the car, just put them on the boat, down the water. The work is simpler, so there are children on the flower field in Sa Dec village to help their family water the flowers.
