four-leaf clover ~ 06/30/11 ~ at home

four-leaf version of white clover
Trifolium repens

It must be my lucky day, times 2! I never thought about what species of clover the "traditional" four-leaf lucky clover is. Ah, I have many fond memories laying in the warm school yard grass with my girlfriends, searching every recess for those 4 leaves of luck. Looking online for information was entertaining. Here's a "how-to" from wikiHow and its corresponding luck link - numbers 10 and 12 hold especially true for Nature ID. May you have the blessings of luck.

Oh my gosh, I can't believe you found those! I have a HUGE thing for four leaf clovers. I would love to dig those up and put them in my garden!

I'll see what I can do. I think it came with the alyssum (see how stressed it is) or in my new bag of potting soil (I have three-leaf clovers in almost all my new transfers).
