Five-Leaf Clover

    Newer Older

    If a four-leaf clover is good luck, what is a five-leaf clover?

    My brother found this on our grandparents' front yard. For some reason it ended up in the sugar bowl.

    And in case anyone is wondering; according to Wikipedia, the official world record for most leaves on a clover is 21.

      Thank you for the compliments, guys! And Canonist, yeah, I've had it for just under a year now. I should tag my photos with the gear I've used to take them. I'll do that soon.

      Evidently, a five leaf clover is a fantastic photo op :D I love that it ended up in the sugar bowl. First, because the sugar cubes remind me of when I was a child and my Finnish grandparents would bring out the sugar cubes to set on the table. We never had them (only free running sugar in a bowl) so they were a curiosity to me and I loved to play with them. Second, the white cubes provide a great background to showcase the green, unusual and hopefully VERY lucky clover :o) This is a great shot.

      Thank you. I think the green and white combination was what caught my eye when I shot this. I wonder if someone in my family kept the clover.
