Did you ever search through patches of clover as a child looking for that special four-leaf clover?

I remember when my mom saw me searching through a patch and said, ‘Looks like we need to spray the lawn for weeds again.”

I was so upset when I found out clover is often seen as a weed that takes over lawns. In my childhood mind, I loved imaging owning a lawn that was completely clover one day.

And guess what? I kinda do lol. 

The front area of my lawn if so full of clover and it doesn’t bother me. We are not aggressive with lawn chemicals and I actually like the color and softness of the clover over the rough crabgrass.

And I do find myself occasionally looking for that rare genetic mutation for a four-leaf clover. 

“The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck.” 

-Channing Pollock

While the three leaves of a shamrock stand for faith, hope, and love, the fourth leaf is often viewed as luck.

I hope luck finds you and this crochet coaster is a reminder to appreciate all the luck that comes your way.
