Today is St Patrick's Day so I am making a special post about shamrocks. I am part Irish so my family has always celebrated St Patrick's Day. I don't know a whole lot about the celebration except if I didn't wear something green to school the other kids pinched me. And I see leprechauns, shamrocks, and pots of gold when celebrating.
It makes me wonder whether the St Patrick's Day shamrock was a clover or a wood sorrel. I know that shamrocks have three leaves. What do you think they are?
Apparently there are lots of contenders: the favourite being lesser trefoil lesser trefoil info. I have birds foot trefoil and occasionally what I believe to be black medick (although that isn't supposed to grow this far north) but not lesser trefoil that I've noticed yet.
