In a broader sense perhaps LQ :gflower: , but then it would have been not intentional and highly unlikely as the Cliffs of Gibraltar is most probable.

Not Kings Cross Station LQ :(

Tip: Think something fragile, delicate, rare in other cases it is in abundance. The Cliffs of Gibraltar is just one place for the former but in open savannah - abundance.

I see I'm going to need loads more tips!!! :slap:

Okay so could the rock of Gibraltar park be referring to Iberis gibraltarica???

If so I'll have to start puzzling this from the start!!!

Iberis gibraltarica is a good example LQ! :gflower: (But it is one of many)

Ok another tip: Hey! Parrot! You have a beautiful Beak refers to The Parrot’s Beak (Lotus berthelotii)

:dance: Lion Queen!! Well done you are correct :clap: :clap: :clap: :gflower:

Alias

Not intentional - A wildflower (or wild flower) is a flower that grows in the wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded or planted

Not an exact term - "Wildflower" is not an exact term. Terms like native species are considered much more accurate.

On the high cliffs of Gibraltar - The wildflower species Gibraltar Campion (Silene tomentosa) is particularly rare and is only found on the high cliffs of Gibraltar.

Hey! Parrot! You have a beautiful Beak - The Parrot’s Beak (Lotus berthelotii)
is a beautiful wild flower that has been classified as exceedingly rare in the wild.

Even a ghost that can live underground for years - The Ghost Orchid (Epipogium aphyllum) is a fascinating rare wild flower plant that was presumed to be extinct.

But always a lady – Girl/Woman/Female


= Wildflowergirl which is the alias of the forum member.
