Three Leaved Clover

Here's what the photographer says about this photo:

When I was a little girl my Irish grandfather and I used to go off hunting for four leaved clovers until one day we were eating our sardine sandwiches by the water and we got philosophising about it (he was a great philosopher in between beers, was my Grandfather) and we concluded that four leaved clovers must be the unluckiest things in the world ... people were always snapping them off their
stalks. THREE leaved, clovers, we decided, were much luckier.

And easier to find.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
