Inquisitive about, for example, a bouquet (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

nosegay

'bouquet' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'inquisitive about for example a' is the wordplay.
'inquisitive' becomes 'nosy' (I've seen this in another clue).
'about' indicates putting letters inside.
'for example' becomes 'eg' (short for 'exempli gratia', 'for example' in Latin).
'eg'+'a'='ega'
'nosy' enclosing 'ega' is 'NOSEGAY'.

(Other definitions for nosegay that I've seen before include "Corsage" , "Fragrant posy" , "Small bouquet" , "pick of the bunch" , "Small scented bunch of flowers" .)
