From Austria,Grossglockner high alpine road...
Edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum), is one of the best-known European mountain flowers.Since it usually grows in inaccessible places, it is associated in many countries of the alpine region with mountaineering. Its white colour is considered a symbol of purity, and Edelweiss means "noble whiteness" or "noble purity", its Romanian name, floarea reginei means "Queen's flower".
Thank you very much,Jurate :)
