Cabrillo Stay at Home Quiz #3

Today’s quiz was created by VIP Jack. It is a flower and plant field trip. As Jack says:

Here are a selection of flowers I have photographed while roving the monument. The challenge is to identify the flower, and the location within the monument where the picture was taken. Some of the pictures go back a couple of years, so the backgrounds may have changed.

See which ones you know. Don’t forget to use the Ebinder for additional help. Answers to this quiz will be posted on Monday. Have fun!

Good luck and have fun!
