3 LEAVES, NOT 4

4-leaf clovers may be good luck
(if you find one),
but it's the SHAMROCK that holds a special place
in the mind and heart of Ireland's history.
(And the shamrock has 3 leaves, not 4.)

In fact, Ireland is the only country
to have a plant as its national symbol.

As late as 1985, international supreme courts
have officially defended Ireland's trademark rights
to use the shamrock as its national symbol.

(So there!)

And by the way,
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  1. ça sent la Saint Patrick. Cette fête est aussi souhaitée en France, plus particulièrement en Bretagne, pays Celte comme l'Irlande.

  3. Olá, amigo!
    Conheço as duas versões do trevo.
    O trevo de 3 folhas é uma espécie de praga de jardim... pelo menos, onde moro está em toda parte.
    O trevo de quatro folhas (que é chamado de trevo da sorte) é cultivado em vasos... provavelmente uma modificação genética.
    Aguardo sua vitinha, quando puder:
