I don’t pretend to be a gardener or even someone with even a basic knowledge of plants. It’s more of an appreciation, like people who say they don’t know much about art but…”I know what I like”
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

I will take credit for being a “master waterer” though because these little clover seeds were just planted on Tuesday and they have already begun to sprout. Made my heart sing!

#clover #luckyday
I came across this patch of clover that had about 7 to 9 four-leaf clovers and 2 to 3 five-year clovers.

It was a little windy, so pictures might be unfocused.

Red clover

Growing on sidewalks 😊
It seems to be robust - I wondered if this might work as a ground cover for my back yard or sidewalks, hoping that it is low maintenance, so that I can save time for fly fishing 🤔

I love to see the red clover every year, a favourite of many species of bee, including the common carder bee, honeybee and red-tailed bumblebee.

On a whim during a vacation on the northern California coast, I bought a half kilo of clover seed. When I got home, I cast it all across the grass lawn.

Much of the grass has vanished now, replaced with a knee-high growth of pink-flowered clover. The bees and hummingbirds like our yard and visit more.

Because the clover fixes nitrogen, if we have to trim it back, we put the clippings into our compost, and that goes into the garden.

On closer inspection, red #clover (#Trifolium pratense) reveals its true beauty.

Lately I've been doing a lot of focus stacking without a tripod, which is always a hit and miss affair. This one turned out nice.

We found several four-leaf clovers a while ago. We wanted to see how it would turn out if we planted them in a flowerpot. The number of clovers increased but only one had four leaves.

I liked how easy this video shows collecting crimson #clover seeds is: I'm impressed by this video that used surgical tools to disassemble a dried white clover flower and the seed pod inside:, but I read that I can just pinch off the flower heads like the guy did in the crimson clover video. This woman has a long, quiet video about picking red clover, and she shows the driest flowers crumble into seeds:

#SeedBombs are great fun for children and adults!

"Whether it's a plant pot, flowerbed, wild patch in your lawn or an entire #meadow, sowing #wildflowers in your #garden provides vital resources to support a wide range of insects that couldn't otherwise survive in urban or built-up areas.

Throwing, breaking up or digging ‘seed bombs’ (or balls) into areas in your garden that need a little brightening up is a perfect way of spending an afternoon!

You will need:

- Meadow flower seeds or seeds collected from the garden.
- Peat-free compost.
- Powdered clay (found in craft stores)
- Mixing bowl.

Creating your seed bomb:

1. In a bowl, mix together 1 cup of seeds with 5 cups of compost and 2-3 cups of clay powder (you could use clay soil instead if you have it).

2. Slowly mix in water with your hands until everything sticks together.

3. Roll the mixture into firm balls.

4. Leave the balls to dry in a sunny spot.

5. Now for the fun bit! Plant your seed bombs by throwing them at bare parts of the garden and wait to see what pops up!

Top plants to include in your seed bombs:

- Bulbous #Buttercup - Ranunculus bulbosus
- #Chamomile - Chamaemelum nobile
- Common Bird’s-foot-trefoil - Lotus corniculatus
- Common Knapweed - Centaurea nigra
- Common Spotted-orchid - Dactylorhiza fuchsii
- Lady's bedstraw - Galium verum
- Red #Clover - Trifolium pratense
- Wild #Thyme - Thymus polytrichus

11 Important Things to Know About #Clover Lawns

A clover lawn provides many benefits: less watering, less mowing, natural fertilization, and the attraction of wildlife and #pollinators. Is a clover yard right for you? Here's what else you need to know.

By Lori Lovely | Published Jun 21, 2022

"America’s #biodiverse meadows of days gone were slowly converted to French- and English-style #monoculture #lawns featuring mostly turf grass. By the late 1800s, the neatly trimmed, aesthetically pleasing grass lawn became a symbol of wealth. The invention of the lawn mower, as well as planned communities designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (the designer of Central Park) and other landscape architects, further cemented the trend in the U.S.

"While manicured #monocultural lawns may look nice, they have drawbacks, such as depriving #pollinators of food and #habitat and requiring greater #water consumption, maintenance, and chemical treatment than a clover lawn requires."

How to Plant a #Clover #Lawn

Clover requires less water and fertilizer than grass; plus, it's magical looking.

By Ilana Strauss, July 21, 2022

"Clover is becoming popular because it looks magical but doesn't require as much care as regular lawns. Since it doesn't need fertilizer or much water, it's also good for the planet. Plus, it's tough.

"You don't need to water microclover as much as grass, and don't even think about using an herbicide on it. You can add fertilizer if you want, but clover is pretty good at keeping itself fertilized since it naturally pulls nutritious nitrogen out of the air."

Did you know that the Elizabethan #English believed the #Irish ate #clover?

Jesuit priest Edmund Campion wrote in 1571 that "shamrotes" were eaten by the Irish.

His claim was repeated many times over, usually to describe the miserable poverty in #Ireland.

This is likely a language mistake, as young clover is "seamair óg" in Irish, while wood sorrel, a commonly consumed plant, is "seamsóg".

Happy #StPatricksDay !

#linguistics #green

The photo shows  Oxalis perennans, a wood sorrel native to Australia. The photo was taken in my backyard in 2021.

We see a close-up of a green plant. It is clover-like, with three heart-shaped leaves. There are about seven plants in the photo.

Small raindrops pearl on the corners and the center of the leaf, while the sun is casting a dabbled light on it.
