Another mysterious flower is the forget-me-not. It seems that every country has its own story about the history of its name. In Europe some believe that there was a couple who once went for a walk along the Danube. The man saw beautiful flowers and waded through the water to pick them for his girl. The current pulled him and the man drowned. The only words he said to her before he died were: “Forget me not”. The Ancient Egyptians used to believe that people who would put the leaves of the flower over the eyes would soon become prophets.
