signs in nature

"I'm looking over a four leaf clover
That I overlooked before
First is the sunshine, the second is rain,
Third is the roses that bloom in the lane."   Written in 1927 by Dixon & Woods.

This reminds me of Bev's comment the other day, "One year I walked the same way every day (about a mile or so), and challenged myself to find something new or different every day. It made me look beyond what I expected to find to see what was actually there."

I love finding four leaf clovers.  Occasionally one just pops up before my eyes.  I get a lovely happy rush; a flush that runs through my whole system at finding the lucky portent.
Sometimes the magic is in the little things.  I spoke yesterday of hitting it big with the Lottery, but you know I enjoy finding the occasional, four leaf clover, pennies, nickels, and dimes, and let me find a piece of folding money and my day is complete. Whew Hoo!  So while I await my pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, I will indulge myself in the little bits of everyday magic.
Also maybe take the time to gather some clover flowers and make me a little circlet or necklace.

  1. I made chains of daisies when I was a kid. Now I come to think of it I found a lot more four leaf clovers when I was young. Maybe because I was playing in the grass more :)

    1. those bits of wonder show up when we quit pressing so hard to find them. Everything in its own time.

  2. I don't think I've ever found a four leaf clover, other than what they sell in stores for St. Pat's Day. I agree with you 100% - the magic is in the little things!

    1. I think fairies may encourage the clover to give us a four leafed bonus.

  3. laying on the field, looking for 4 leaf clovers instead of being alert for the baseball is probably why I got my only D in school. I still haven't a clue about any sports but enjoy the presence of anticipation.

  4. I must admit most of the ones I have found were when I was younger just out playing in the field. The bumblebees really love the clover flowers and we know we have just about killed all of the weeds out of our lawns and so goes the magic.
