Down to Earth Romance

Do you believe that shamrocks bring good luck? According to legend, they do, especially if found accidentally. A genuine four leaf clover comes from the white clover plant, with one leaf growing smaller than the others. The leaves represent faith, hope, love, and luck.

I found this four-leaf clover by chance on my lawn many years ago, and have kept it sealed in plastic and stored inside a book since then. Its color has faded, but I do feel lucky to have found something in nature that’s truly rare. Only one in 10,000 clover grow four leaves.

Wishing you the luck of the Irish and a happy St. Patrick’s day!
