Many see a green shamrock in their minds when thinking of Ireland, but this blogger thinks of roses. While some readers may think the Irish American mom has her countries wrong (as the rose is a common symbol for England), she gives a list of reasons why Ireland is the rose of her heart. From a beauty pageant whose winner is given the title of a beautiful rose to pseudo facts about druids with black roses, the rose appears throughout Irish history and culture.
