Golden flowers myth
|Rumor has it that soon after he got the gift of the golden touch, King Midas saw some beautiful white flowers. Without thinking about the consequence he reached out and touched them – turning them to solid gold.The beautiful flowers were not happy about suddenly turning to metal and they asked for Pan the forest god to come and save them.
Pan changed them back to living flowers again – but the golden color stayed with them.
To this day they are the last living legacy of the folly of King Midas.
