    • It is a pretty blossom. I love clover anyway and it’s especially nice when it cover a stream bank.

  2. we have lots of pink clover here,.. I’ll have to watch for white. For such a common plant it’s really beautiful close up!

    • I think its secret is in its simplicity. We have lots of the white in our yard where I encourage it bun none of the red.

  3. I love it blown up like this. Wouldn’t it be great if they were as big as in your picture? I’d love to have a bouquet of clover the size of peonys! Speaking of peony’s, they are my favorite flower…are there any wild ones growing around your place that you can photograph? 🙂

    • Come to think of it, they would resemble a peony if they were that size. I also like peonies and my wife grows some beauties. They are just past their blooming prime now though. She has both red and white and they’re gorgeous. I don’t think they grow wild though or at least I’ve never seen a wild one.

      Thanks for visiting, Melissa!

  4. There’s nothing like a bed of clover along a stream bank on a Spring Day! Looks like Spring has sprung today! YAY!

  5. Beautiful capture of the lovely white clover. I wonder if wild white clover is lucky. 🙂

    • I suppose it is, Anna. A fairly large patch of the clover in our yard yields lots of lucky four-leaf clover leaves but I haven’t really checked the wild ones.

    • I know they don’t get much attention: they deserve much more, I think.

    • I do too, Tabbie. They are an all around sweet little plant… just ask the bees.

  8. This is the kind of image that just makes you think Nature is so magic and beyond belief. There are thousands of flowers – this beautiful. But this one is sure special. Great capture and bokeh.

    • Nature truly is full of magic Bob, and I think wildflowers are evidence to that. So many and so beautiful.
