Emeralds


Much like jewels these shoots of clover which grow wildly in my kaffir lime tree pot, like a green bubble carpet below the trunk, really scream a kelly emerald when the morning sun hits them just right. They are growing better than my lime tree!  They fit in with my faddish love of most everything Irish this year.  They are more than a month ahead of St. Patrick's Day and with my travel for some warmer weather before that time, it will be interesting to see if they can survive some neglect.

It's good to see the green even if you are going away!

clover has come up in huge mounds all over the acre and a half that the shop sits on. it's very pretty. it will probably be blooming from all that neglect when you get back.

Very pretty! We have clover all over, and when the weather is warm enough, honey bees. It always makes me sad when we have to mow the lawn and cut the clover flowers.

An astonishing green. Clover is pretty hardy, needs a little water though.
