Identification Quiz

Scroll down past this quiz to see photos of the BLUEBELLS!


It was a rainy morning when we enjoyed the Bluebells - too rainy to bring guide books along.
We discovered many other species during our walk and decided to post pictures here for identification. We knew many of them but I will leave all of the names off to see how many can be identified. Your identifications can be reported using the comment section below or by Emailing them to Canandaiguabotanical@gmail.com (numbers are under each photo).

  1. 5. Dandelion or Taraxacum officinale (perhaps it's Thomas's favorite because he's actually allowed to pick as many as he wishes)
