Art: Crocus's Lover (Greek Mythology) by Artist
I love greek mythology and the tale of Crocus is one that actually doesn't carry any negativity, but instead is based on love.

Basically the myth goes that there was a fine Sheperd by the name of Crocus who fell madly in love with the Nymph Smilax. The Gods were so impressed by Crocus' love and devotion to Smilax that they honored him by granting him imortality in the form of a Crocus flower, his lover Smilax was turned into an evergreen.
