#Omens&Symbols . . . .the ‘little clover’

“The little trefoil known as the shamrock was once known as ‘seamróg’, pronounced ‘seamroy’, meaning ‘little clover’. Many agree that the ancient Druids honored it as a sacred plant. The Druids believed the shamrock had the power to avert evil spirits. Some people still believe the shamrock has mystical, even prophetic, powers. It is said that the leaves of shamrocks turn upright whenever a storm is coming.”
