• Look how big these other shamrocks of an oxalis variety get! The pink blooms are delightful, seen here.

Oxalis Shamrocks, Two Kinds

Newer Older

This is one image of the four in the mosaic created to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, as I am one quarter Irish.

The large green shamrock at the left under the smaller ones is the variety that produces the pink blooms seen here. The small green shamrocks produce the ruffled yellow oxalis blooms. Both of these are in my rock garden near my front door.

The four images chosen for the mosaic are here:

    I'm told the Irish are one of the lost tribes of Israel, (Namely the tribe of Dan), and in Genesis 49 is Jacob's prophecying of the twelve sons of Israel (who is also Jacob), of "what shall befall them in the last time"! Of the tribe of Dan, if this is true,(and some evidence bears witness for sure), it can also give insight to the tale of snakes in ireland and why the Irish are sometimes referred to as 'snakes'! Let me qoute; "(verses 16,17 KJV) "Dan shall bejudge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.(17) Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider falls backward." If Patrick was not really Irish, but English instead, the refference to him 'ridding Ireland of the snakes" may have been an attempt to show that converted Irishmen are no longer snakes. But this makes me wonder of Christopher Reeve's accident, since that was claimed to have been foretold several times long before it happened.

    Nice image. Thanks for allowing others to make use of it. I've used it in an article I wrote about coming up with Irish items to give as gifts. It's about half-way down the page.
