Amazing what you find when you pick up a stick for the dog! Finding s four-leafed clover is always a thrill, but the one on the left here actually has 6 leaves. But why do we think they’re lucky? Is it because they’re rare? And by the way, you can eat clover! Right now is a good time for the flowers; the optimum temperature for clover nectar to taste divine is 70 degrees c. The bees know all about this. Pinch a few of the red ones, pull off the petals and make into a cordial, wine, pop into home-made icecreams of sorbets or just nibble.
