Luck

6-leave clover.

I am trying to figure out if I am very lucky or if there is something seriously wrong with Maryland.


Clover Patch

Before two weeks ago, I had never found a four-leaf clover. My oldest daughter found one about 3 years ago and that was the first I had seen in person. At the end of April, I found both a six-leaf and a five-leaf clover in the same day. It really hasn't been the same since. 


Three 4-leaf Clovers.

It hasn't stopped there. I have literally found a dozen. Between my yard and the lawn at work, they just keep coming. I kept thinking to myself that maybe these aren't clovers. Maybe it is a different species that resembles clovers. This week, however, the white clover flowers started to bloom so I knew they were right ...according to my internet research;)

So, with the inordinate amount of 4, 5 and 6-leaf clovers I have found, it's logical to conclude that I am either very lucky or there is something unusual about the soil around here.

  1. Weird. Very weird. Any toxic waste buried around there? ;) Maybe you should pick up a Mega Millions and/or Powerball ticket this weekend.

    1. It would be silly not to play! You can't win it, if you are not in it.
