Right now our road ditches are abloom with alfalfas and clovers. 100_2748I really do not know where they come from, we are not planting them, and they are not there every year.  This year seems to be a perfect year, because they are all over.

One of my favorites of these clovers is the red clover.  I remember as a child picking these flowers to get a taste of what nectar eating creatures eat.  100_2746If you pick the flower and take it apart you get the little flowerettes that hold the nectar.100_2747Suck on or bite into that little white base of the flower and you get a minnie burst of sweet.  Oh, the things childhood memories are made of.
