Curious Clovers.

Red Clover, Trifolium pratense

White Clover, Trifolium repense

For years I have been mad about Red Clover, Trifolium pratense, and I love the scent of White Clover, Trifolium repense. The tubular bells of the Red are amazing candy sticks, which you'd see in sweetshops.
I have both Clovers growing in the garden. The Red are very late and haven't developed into flowers yet. These photos have been taken on our county council estate. The White Clover has just opened here and there in the frontgarden, where it creeps over the edge of the path in front of the house. Next month it will open in the backgarden, where it grows close to the wheelie bins and the composter, where the scent will surprise you everytime you feed the birds or use bins/composter.

this faded Flower shows those tubular shapes of the flower.

Sea Bindweed, Calystegia sepium.


  1. love the dandelion seed pics, I tried to get some shots of them suspended in the air like yours but without much success. Nice work

  2. Excellent macro shots, really beautiful. I particularly like the 2nd last picture.

  3. Wonderful shots Yoke. I love the clover.
