Once upon a time there lived a handsome prince on a high mountain. He wanted to go to the moon because he loved gentle moonlight. He loved the moon's gentle white shine.
But soon, it was time to go back to earth and the prince felt very sad. The princess gave him a beautiful flower that grew on the moon, so that the prince could always look at it and remember her.
The prince took the flower, bid the princess goodbye and went all the way back to earth. He planted the flower, and soon it covered all the mountains like a lovely white carpet.
It is believed that this is how the alpine flowers reached the earth from the moon!
