Did you know that the rose is a symbol of Ireland?
This comes as a surprise to many , but in centuries past the "black rose" was a code name for Ireland.
You can explore the history and facts behind the rose as a symbol of Ireland by checking out my earlier ramblings.
Here's a jigsaw puzzle to help celebrate this little known emblem of Ireland.
Here's the photo featured in this online puzzle.
This puzzle is a little tricky since there's quite a bit of grey background.
I hope you enjoy piecing together this beautiful fallen rose with its scattered leaves.
HELPFUL DIRECTIONS FOR ASSEMBLING THESE ONLINE PUZZLES:

You can also choose how many pieces you wish to use.
In the center menu, the grid box to the left allows you to choose the number of pieces with which you wish to play. There’s a low option of 9 pieces if you have a little one who would like to try it out, and you can choose 100 or more pieces if you have a large computer screen.
