4 leaf clover for luck!

Have a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone.
this is my favorite!
these cuties are in the eagle enclosure at BWS.
Here is the day we wear the green, kiss the blarney stone and look for four leaf clovers.  Ahh the early days of spring, I loved laying out on the front lawn looking up at the clouds passing by on the warm spring days and I remember sitting out in our lawn looking for the "illusive 4 leaf clover"  I did find a few!!!  We will soon turn our attention away from the last Shamrock and turn our attention to bunnies and Easter eggs.

I found this on “domestiquette” blog.   Here are the meanings of each leaf on the four Shamrock:

4-Leaf Clover and Luck:

· The four leaf clover is a universally accepted symbol of good luck with its origin ages old. According to legend, Eve carried a four leaf clover from the Garden of Eden.

· Druids held the 4 leaf clover in high esteem and considered them a sign of luck. In 1620, Sir John Melton wrote: “If a man walking in the fields find any four-leaved grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing.

· According to Irish folklore, finding a stem of clover with 4 leaves will bring you good luck, but finding a clover stem with more than 4 leaves will not bring you even more luck.

· The mystique of the four leaf clover continues today, since finding a real four leaf clover is still a rare occurrence and omen of good luck.

What do the 4 leaves symbolize?:

One leaf is for HOPE…
The second for FAITH…
The third for LOVE…
And the fourth for LUCK!
