Story

Before the Great Calamity, Princess Zelda and Link rested under the shade of a lone tree located on the plain near a pond. Zelda was taking pictures of flowers and giving Link a brief lecture on the use of flowers that grow in Hyrule as ingredients when she spots a rare and endangered flower called a Silent Princess. She notes any current efforts to grow it domestically have failed and that it can only thrive in the wild and all she can do is hope it is strong enough to survive and prosper on its own. Afterwards Zelda spots and catches a Hot-Footed Frog much to her excitement as she wanted to test the delicacy's special properties and insists a reluctant Link to eat it raw (she is apparently unaware it must be cooked first to create a Hasty Elixir).

Link later returns one hundred years later during the Quest "Captured Memories" where he recalls a Recovered Memory of these events entitled "Silent Princess".
