Around the Globe – England

Shira Yehudit Djlilmand

Strap up – all ready to go? Today we’re going to a little country only the size of New York State, which once ruled half the globe – England.

 

FYI – Roses

Shira Yehudit Djlilmand

Everyone loves roses. Apart from being the national flower of England, it seems that Americans like them too. The first US president George Washington bred roses in his home, and in 1986 President Ronald Reagan passed a law that the rose was now the official national flower of the US. It’s also the state flower of Georgia, Iowa, New York, North Dakota, and the District of Columbia.
