Fun Fact: According to folklore many brave men have mountaineered to dangerous and fatal locations in the European Alps to harvest the rare Edelweiss flower to give to their loved one as a sign of their love and devotion. Unfortunately some would fall to their death and each Edelweiss botanical represents a tear shed in their memory. Talk about devotion! Edelweiss is also the National flower of Switzerland. ** Disclaimer - no one was hurt trying to harvest the Edelweiss for this picture.
