I took these pictures recently of a flower growing in one of our flowerbeds. Can you identify it? You can click on the pictures to enlarge them, if you'd like.
I captured a little lagniappe in the following picture, without realizing it until I edited it (see the little bug?).
I'm sure most of you have recognized this exquisite little flower by now, but I'd be willing to bet that you've never looked at them or thought of them as a thing of beauty until now.
Yes, it's a just a little Clover Blossom, happily thriving in our bed of Louisiana Irises.
I hope this will make you stop and think the next time you reach to pull up a clump of clover or another "weed" in your yard or flower beds ... and at least take the time to appreciate its beauty and uniqueness before you "yank it up."
