Countless pink-purple flowers of heather have been captured by photographer Vladimir Tadić.

This plant is revered for its medicinal properties and is utilized in folk medicine as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial remedy for cystitis, urolithiasis, gout, rheumatism, and colds.

In addition to its healing qualities, heather has been attributed with magical properties since ancient times. According to legend, heather emerged from the blood of ancient heroes who lie in the graves of giants. It was also believed to ward off curses and enchantments, with heather wreaths hung on mirrors to keep evil away from homes.
