Dew'd

Did you realize clover is hairy? Well, it is--and these are so fuzzy and soft looking with the early morning dew clustered on their leaves.

I have a dear childhood friend, Juli, who can find four-leaf clovers where ever it grows. She often sends pressed four-leafed clovers to me in cards.

I rarely find them, though I do look. I think she has a gift. I've never known anyone else who can actually spot four-leafed clover the way she does!

I know of only one other person who can find 4-leaf clovers without trying - Victoria.

This is a beautiful shot of the dewey hairy clovers!

Oooohhhh - what amazing shots!!! They look positively hairy! But ever so cool. Almost like a spider had been busy in the night embroidering lace all over those clovers - and just in time for St. Paddy's day. Woo-hoo!

Don't think I ever found a 4 leaf clover, although I remember looking long and hard as a child.

I have looked for 4 leaf clovers for 60+ years,.... never have found one. That's a fascinating shot!

I understand. I would pick 2 clovers, remove 2 leaves from one of them and try to hold them together to "prove" I could find those lucky things! Ah well, let's have another round for fond memories! :)

Yumm... this looks like a thirst-drenching cool cucumber shake... I found big fat dewdrops like fairy pearls in the Lady's Mantle newborn leaves this morning...

i love morning dew, actually the short form of one of my daughter's name, Talia, has that meaning. i remember sitting down once with a friend and it seems we were in a field of 4 leaf clovers, we found many...i think that was the only time.
