Each summer of my childhood I would lay in the grass of my lawn in western new york for hours and intricately comb the three leaf clovers looking for a lucky four leaf. I would then laminate them and give them to my friends and family (how "lucky" ;) ). After my father passed away I found one of my lucky clovers tucked in his wallet. I was 17 when he passed so it meant a lot to me that he had kept it all those years.
It is said that for every 10,000 three leafed clovers is there is one 4 leaf. If this is the case then my lawn is a lucky one. I've been finding tons. It is debated whether the fourth leaflet is caused genetically or environmentally, but something about my lawn's environment must be causing this lucky influx.
While you hang around and barbeque this 4th of july weekend, look for some lucky clovers. And happy 4th of July!
