Hi Adina,
I was pleasantly surprised to find your article today. Once again you've given us a wonderful article.
I really like the photos of your son and grandson out in the clover patch. : - )
I do think that it's interesting that clover is/was a primary source of nectar for them honey bees in Europe. The region they live in determines what the bees go after for nectar. Out here it depends on what is blooming and then when one bloom ends the beekeepers move the bees to the next plant blooming, whereas in Europe most people keep their own bees in orchards/gardens for the whole year, and do not move them from location to location, following the bloom.
I found the history of how they became known as symbols of luck, quite interesting.
I was impressed too by your information on the growing conditions/patterns of the Clover. Really good stuff.
Keep up the good work, and continue to educate and entertain us, so we can see the world with wonder through your eyes.
Walk In Beauty~

Jules, thank you for your kind words! I'm glad you liked my article. It was fun to write it! I know some beekeepers here in Romania who are also moving the bees from one place to another.
