The secret message of grass


It's been a difficult week for the world and in particular for the people of Ukraine ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ’”. So today I thought to find a piece of porcelain that we can take heart from.


It is widely known (although if you live somewhere far from Europe, you may not know it) that the island of Ireland went through a difficult struggle, and still does to some degree. In the 19th Century the whole island was under British rule; today most of the island is the Irish Republic, and the northern part is one of the nations that form the United Kingdom. What is today called "The Troubles" really started in the second half of the 19th Century, when the Catholic population started to demand self-rule.
