A sideways view at the fairy flowers

These ‘Florae Faericums’ are of Norwegian origin. They get their name from the Faroe islands from where they were imported into Norway by the Viking Emperor ‘Cnut the Great’ in 1007, when he was only 12 years old.

He had falling in love with a Princess named ‘Cnit the Little One’ and took these back to her in jar that was watered every night for the 6 months of the journey.

He later named them after not only the Faroes, but the girl that had wings and fluttered in his heart.
