My eldest (with the smug grin below) is a magnet for 4-leaf clovers. He claims that last spring he found 8 in one day. He has no proof of that claim. But he did find 5 yesterday (we have proof and witnesses) without even trying to find them! Somehow, he just seems to spot them from afar — or something? For instance, he was climbing our rope swing, looked down and spotted a 4-leafer. He jumped down and picked it. I don’t know how he does it. And neither does he.

He’s found a couple of 5-leaf clovers too.

Maybe we have some lucky clover patches in the yard? Sudoku has found a couple of four-leaf clovers this season too. Is this normal?
