Lucky white heather:
Legend has it that in the 3rd Century AD, Malvina (daughter of the legendary Scottish poet, Ossian), was betrothed (engaged to be married) to a Celtic warrior named Oscar.
Tragically (but not unexpectedly!), Oscar died in battle, and when Malvina heard the news she was heartbroken. The messenger who delivered the bad news, also delivered a spray of purple heather that Oscar had sent as a final token of his undying love for her.
It's said that when Malvinas' tears fell onto the flowers in her hand, they immediately turned white, and this magical occurence prompted her to say 'although it is the symbol of my sorrow, may the white heather bring good fortune to all who find it.'
