*DINNA FORGET... the prickly tale of the Scottish thistle... one dark night, in the middle ages when the Scots and Norsemen were at war, the Norsemen came ashore planning a surprise attack on the sleeping Scottish clansmen. The Norsemen removed their boots and crept quietly on bare feet until a sharp cry of pain shattered the quiet night... one of the Norsemen had stepped on the Scottish thistle, alerting the Scots to the surprise attack. They sprang into action and drove the invaders from their shores and the thistle was credited with saving the day... becoming the national flower and emblem of Scotland.
