Clover

Clover

We’ve all hunted for four-leaf clovers, haven’t we? I know I have. I was also intrigued to learn that for every 10,000 three-leaf clovers, there is only 1 four-leaf. No wonder I enjoyed looking for them. Being rare, they were special.

I was inspired to have clover on the blog today, as I have for many of my subjects, because the photos of the clover flowers were so pretty. 

Clover is a highly nutritious pasture plant and is pollinated by bumblebees and honeybees. These plants can suffer from ‘clover sickness’, however, which is prompted by infrequent crop rotations, insect pests, soil imbalance and the decline of pollinators.
