"Alice! a childish story take,
And with a gentle hand
Lay it where Childhood's dreams are twined
In Memory's mystic band,
Like pilgrim's withered wreath of flowers
Plucked in a far-off land."

CD aka LC 1865

Female monarch
Flamingoes and hedgehogs
What Tony Bennett left in SF

Addendum: It occured to me that strictly speaking these clues could be a bit confusing since they could suggest another location owned by SF Parks and Rec. This location is most definitely in Golden Gate Park. It turns out these are probably Scottish hedgehogs, not British. They are, however, gracious enough to let their British Cousins use this facility on occasion.

Once you have reached the above location, stand facing the headquarters and look to your right across the street to Verde #2 and #3. Cross the street and walk on the sidewalk bordered with flowers that would enrage the monarch (owing to the fact they are rosado, blanco, and amarillo). Turn the corner and head for the border of purpurea,rojo and lila. On your left you will eventually see some amarillo and naranjo nose twisting flowers. Just beyond that you will see a small marron structure. Stand facing it, then walk around its left side, around the back then along the right side. Look down along the edge at ground level for a hole (Actually there are want the one nearest the back) that would allow a hedgehog to wait out the rain. Reach here for the prize.
