The photo above is of the herb Wild Marjoram (Origanum Vulgare). The name Origanum is derived from two Greek words - oros (mountain) and ganos (joy). The Greeks used it as a remedy for narcotic poisoning, convulsions and dropsy. If marjoram grew on a grave it ensured the happiness of the departed. Both the Greeks and the Romans crowned young couples with marjoram.
Thanks to Christine's website for this information!
