Right now our road ditches are abloom with alfalfas and clovers. I 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. If you pick the flower and take it apart you get the little flowerettes that hold the nectar.Suck 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.
