A 4-leaf clover sort of jumps at me as I walk by. Frequently I cannot find it when I go back. I often can go back later to the same plant and find another. Sometimes there will be several in the same patch. I have saved seeds to grow them, and it didn’t work. Wonder if a red clover could be transplanted …?
My greatest single find was a patch of white clover close to the house. They were tiny from being repeatedly mowed. One ‘jumped’ at me and when I went to pick it – there was another one! I sat down and plucked the nearly perfect little cuties until I had 50, then it wasn't so much fun anymore. The next summer the patch had moved a wee bit but was still there. I never found another in that patch. Probably because I was trying too hard.
I seldom can intentionally find one. I believe it is the asymmetrical form that snags my attention. Oh, my mother had the same ‘talent’. Since moving to the suburbs I seldom find any. Too much ‘lawn’.
