Happy St. Patrick’s Day! There is nothing more fitting for today than a sea of green clover (or shamrocks). These beauties blanket the forest floor, keeping ferns, wild ginger, and other plants under cover until summer’s heat takes hold. Their petite white flowers are a striking accent to the dense mat of foliage. We can see the nearby trees standing tall in the lighting – the surface of the clover reveals splotches of light and dark resulting from the sun shining down through branches. It looks like a lovely (and lucky) place to sit.
