Is it a Mountain Daisy and Celmisia its Latin name. If so thin Rohan should have it, as she got RB


"Wee, modest, crimson-tippèd flow'r,
Thou's met me in an evil hour;
For I maun crush amang the stoure
Thy slender stem:
To spare thee now is past my pow'r,
Thou bonie gem."

Correct. Celmisia semicordata. Don't know whether Rohan is thin or not, but as you offer, Rohan's go now.

Meant think. But suspect Rohan is thin as well given her watershed activities.

Sorry, I was out with family yesterday and missed the tail end of yesterday's deliberations. I'm not sure I deserve the go but try this.

My Mum told us of the LMoBM others claim contact with AFLM but please note I am using 2 different languages so no 2 words are the same.

That's Am Fear Liath Mor, or in English Big Grey Man of Ben MacDhui (substitute Large for Big if you wish)

No, but colours, myths and men (singular) are involved.

Whoops, sorry Charles.. My mother called him the Long Man after an encounter in 1943 with a figure who appeared out of the mist near the summit. That turned out to be very human. Over to you

Must have sat with the response page open for quite some time....but it usually tells you if you might want to revise your post in view of a previous answer.

Thanks, I believe Am Fear Liath Mor, just means big grey thing or presence, but not being a Gaelic speaker I can't be sure.
Try this. The SW finally got its comeuppance at the hand of A.

Much praise due to anyone who gets it in one go.

SW is sometimes referred to as MSW, being the greatest of all it is said.

Seems a little help is needed.
A was an unlikely hero, but cunning. He wins PG-d-l by dint of his exploits.
