Four-leaf Clover, In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to take a look at the creatures just as elusive as that pot of gold. The greens of the Emerald Isle look calm and peaceful by far – but the species in Ireland – from a beautiful barn owl to a toad that runs rather than hops, a bat mouse is no longer in the rest of Europe – are as dangerous as those in the rest of the world. Conservation efforts (and a little luck o ‘the Irish) might still save some of extinction.
With parades and pub parties, you’ll see a ton of small green plants that adorn held this St. Patrick’s Day. The small plant called Shamrock is a symbol of Irish pride and Christianity. The shamrock is the national flower of Ireland and before the time of Christianity, the Shamrock has been widely accepted as a symbol of the moon phases. At the time of Saint Patrick, shamrock, clover, has been recognized as a religious symbol.
The plant was apparently first recorded from 1726 and according to legend, the plant was used by Saint Patrick to illustrate the Christian doctrine of the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. According to legend, two different stories to explain connection to St. Patrick’s Day clover. A story describes Saint Patrick who was standing on a mound of clover and snatched a shamrock to explain the Trinity, the conversion to Christianity many people that day. The second story begins with the planting clover St.Patrick throughout Ireland to hunt snakes. Although there is no historical evidence connecting the St. Patrick with Shamrock, his image almost always holding her three-leaf plant!
