If you see Edelweiss packaged like this anywhere..

Window of cheesy gift shop, Monte Lussari, Italy, 21-Aug-2012

..don’t buy it. It’s protected virtually everywhere. Sightings in their actual alpine settings have become increasingly rare.

And the next time you visit one of the little gift shops near the mountain-top pilgrimage church on Monte Lussari near Tarvisio, let them know they should be embarrassed to have these knickknacks on display. I did and the shop keeper did turn a few shades redder. He didn’t remove them though.
