you know that finding a shamrock has to be accidental, otherwise it will not be lucky.

Celia said...

Lovely, I have a dried 4-leaf clover years ago, good luck to you and yours.

I spent hours in my yard as a child looking for a 4 leaf clover. Hoping to make some wishes. I suppose the best luck is found when you are not looking for it.

I used to preserve the four-leafed clovers I found. My parents' thicker books probably still contain some flat leaves in waxed paper.

A lovely twisty path indeed!

Isabel Doyle said...

Would the DNA of a four leafed clover yield four leafed clovers? That would spoil the fun.

I've NEVER in the whole of my life come across a four leaver - I've just rubbed my lottery ticket against the monitor where your clover appears...!!!!
