Ottawa's Tulip Festival

When I read about Ottawa, I learned about the Tulip Festival held every spring. So today I went to find some tulips.

There are millions of tulips all over Ottawa. The festival began nearly 60 years ago as a celebration of the strong relationship between the Netherlands and Canada. The first tulips were given to Canada by the Netherlands to say thank-you for Canada's help in the second world war. Here is a map of the world with Canada and the Netherlands in red. Canada is the big country on the left. The Netherlands is a small country in the middle.

Here I am sitting on some tulips.

And here I am hiding in some other tulips. Can you find me?
