First Four

As I mentioned last SPRING, we have a small patch of clover near our gas grill that produces a lot of 4 leaf clovers - and at least one 5 leaf clover - last year.  Like polydactyly in humans, the tendency to produce extra lobes is genetic, and this plant definitely got the gene.
In a normal year, we wouldn't be seeing clover at all until about the first of March, but yesterday, I picked the first 4 leaf clover of 2016.
