    Hi Tulip Fans,
    We are in Mrs.Howley's fifth grade in Pemetic Elementary,
    Southwest Harbor, Maine. Here is our answer to question #2.
    Most of the tulips that are coming up are near or on the coast
    and if they're not on the coast then likely they are in a warm, southern
    The reason is because on the coast the ocean keeps in heat and
    lets it out slower than the land so it is warmer there. The reason for
    the warm southern states is because they're closer to the equator and
    because of the way the earth is positioned, they get more direct sunlight.
    From, Emily H. and Sarah H.
