We got lots:
Up until yesterday, I had seen one four-leaf clover in my life. J found it and and gave it to me. I have it pressed in a journal. Occasionally, the kids and I poke through the clover in our back yard (which we have lots of, instead of grass), but give up quickly, thinking it hopeless.
But the clover-finding site suggests there are more of them out there than most people realize, so when we went to dinner at friends who also have a clover back yard, I decided to go look, inspired by not only the site but their huge clover. I figured bigger would make it easier to find.
This is how it went: I walked outside, looked down at the clover and the very first plant I focused on – I swear it – had four leaves.
I showed the kids, who were wildly impressed, and the four of us spent the next half an hour clover-hunting. We found 9 four-leaf clovers and 2 five-leaf ones. We feel very lucky.
Then, this morning, I walked out into my own yard, looked down, and immediately found another one. So thus far, I’d have to say that the four-leaf clover has mostly brought me the luck to find more four-leaf clover. Which is better than nothing.
