Hi Frank,

plusieures -- severl
nombreuses -- many

So you are correct.

A maybe descriptive way to express this would be: le champ est couvert de fleures. -- the field is covered by flowers. ;)

HI, Chris!  That's what I believe but my question was in response to an answer. I chose Plusieurs but the correct answer was Il m'a donné de nombreuses fleurs. I don't see that as a better choice than plusieurs. According to the explanation, nombreux is  more than plusieurs which to me is exessive for someone getting flowers.
