Pasque Flower : 할미꽃

Chulmoon shared a Korean folk tale with me.  Here is my paraphrasing of the story.pasqueflower_할미꽃

Once upon a time there was a grandmother with two grand daughters.  One girl was cute, but poor.  The other girl was ugly, but wealthy.  The grandmother went to live with the wealthy grandchild.  However, the grand daughter did not treat her grandmother kindly.  When the grandmother could endue the ill treatment no more, she made the arduous journey over the mountain to her poor grandchild’s home.  Sadly, the journey was too much for her, and she died in front of the home.  On that spot, the pasque flower bloomed.
