Map Description:

New Jersey, USA is called the “Garden State”. This unique map of New Jersey is created using the following garden related state symbols:

    State Fruit: Blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum)
    State Insect: Honeybee (Apis mellifera)
    State Bird: Eastern Goldfinch (Carduelis tristis)
    State Tree: Red Oak (Quercus borealis maxima)
    State Flower: Common Violet (Viola sororia)
The state symbols were layered one by one onto the New Jersey State layer. Then the kaleidoscope images of each one were created and combined to form the composite image of New Jersey.
