On The Subject Of Clovers

Now if a four-leaf clover is meant to symbolise good luck, then what does a five-leaf clover symbolise?  Perhaps a double dose of good luck? The girls were hunting for four-leaf clovers the other day and came across this five-leaf clover in our yard (isn’t it just the prettiest green).

They were so excited when they came inside.  I for one, have never seen one with more than four leaves before.  We seem to have a patch in the backyard that is very reliable for finding the four-leaf variety.

They have been back looking for more with five leaves, but as yet, this is the only one.  Have you ever found one with more than four leaves?  Jacinta x

    The last time I saw a four leaf clover was when I was a teenager. I have never seen five until now!

      It sounds like four-leaf clovers are hard to come by other than in our garden. Jacinta x

    Wow! Extra goodly luck in that methinks! You should press it and keep it. There may never be another one. And I’m coming round to your garden to harvest a four leafed one. I found one once in my youth but it fell out of my hand almost as soon as I picked it. I wonder what that meant? Been looking for one ever since.

      I’ll send the girls out with you tomorrow, you will be bound to find one then. Jacinta x

    So cool! Have you got some magical fairy folk living back there or something? I have never had the good fortune to find a four-leaf, let alone a five-leaf, clover. As someone mentioned above, you should press it and save it. Preserve the luck!

      It seems our clover is definitely special in some way. Perhaps it is neglect? The girls have various fairy homes dotted around the yard, perhaps that has helped? Jacinta x

      I’d like to think of it as something super special too. Jacinta x

    What a brilliant green! I have never seen a four leaf that was real, much less a five leaf clover! Super luck, indeed!

      I hope you find a four-leaf clover one day. Jacinta x

    Wow, that’s amazing. I have to agree with Erin, I too, I have yet to see a four leaf clover let alone five! Amazing luck. =)
