Growing Good Luck

UntitledThe Knight has a knack for finding 4-leaf clovers.  I can’t tell you how many he has pressed in his wallet, or how many more are lurking in drawers and such around the house.   So when he told me there were SEVERAL at our back door, I rolled my eyes… and went to look.

Generally, I can’t find them even when he points them out, but I was able to pluck one all by myself before he weed-eated (?!) them away.   More sprang back up right away, so the other day, I decided to see if we had a little shamrock patch, and it would seem so.

UntitledI want to be clear… these are two different clumps of specialness.  They’re within a couple of feet of each other though. 

Do you have an eye for finding 4-leaf clovers?  The Knight insists they look so different they’re easy to spot.  I don’t know about that; I used to think I was good at those “find what’s different” pair of images featured in so many children’s magazines and such, but I just don’t know anymore!

Maybe Haddon Woods needs to be re-named Shamrock Woods?

UntitledAnd just because it’s pretty and was RIGHT THERE with the good luckers, my favorite azalea.  It’s still kinda’ small; it doesn’t quite get enough sunlight and like everything flora in the woods, it has to endure the deer and their snacking damage.

What’s growing and blooming in your world?

    You are so lucky! I have never found a four leaf clover. I can’t say that I spend a lot of time looking for them, but I’m sure none have popped up right outside my door like yours!!

    Flower and veggie growth is booming here too. I can’t believe how big my herbs are getting. (Barefoot Contessa eat your heart out). I love your pink Azalea!!

    Before seeing the photos in this post, I thought four-leaf clovers were a myth. I’ll keep my eyes peeled in the future.

    Oh, pretty!

    I find them, when I’m back home. One summer when I was a teen I decided I was going to find one every day and but for one day, I did. They tend to grow in clusters. When my parents were packing up the house they remembered that the old books in this one small bookcase had four-leaf clovers pressed in a lot of the pages of this one row of books, and took great delight in the memories and saved them and showed them to me in their new home, decades later.

    I forgot to look for one last week while I was back in Maryland. But then I now spend most of my daylight outdoor time trying to get out of the sun now. I would have looked, though, had I thought of those days… Thank you for the happy memories!

    We have clover in our orchard, under the apple trees, amongst the grass. Turns out that in 1928, it was accepted that clover helped fertilize fruit trees, or some such. I have no idea if they are 3 leaf or 4 leaf, but some have white flowers, and others have purple flowers. It’s one of life’s great mysteries. But it’s nice that you have a shamrock patch!

    Would you want to do something dog/ animal related on the new site?

    Lol…had to laugh at your eyeroll when told about the clovers.
    What’s growing in our yard? With Mr. Bettis racing and ripping? Well occasionally you may find a good ole dandelion patch 😉 One thing about dandelions, no matter how trampled they still survive ;). There is some luverly poison ivy and honeysuckle growing as well although hubby and I are allergic to the mess 😉
