Although not universally loved, clover is an essential part of our ecosystem. If you have it in your lawn, it will actually push out weeds, and of course, it’s an important food source for butterflies, some birds, cows, deer, rabbits, horses, and many other animals.
And let’s not forget how important clover is to our bee friends. They love it, and if you love honey, much of it results from the hard work of clover bees.
This clover patch was very busy with bees and butterflies until I disrupted them with my picture-taking, but I noticed that they were back as soon as I stepped away.
Naturopathy counsels that there are many health benefits to consuming clover, and of course, don’t forget that it’s good luck! ☘️

I guess I should stop trying to pick clover from my lawn then. I’m all for supporting the bees.
I didn’t realise that it’s so good at pushing out weeds. Of course, if you like a carpet-like grass lawn, clover-growth in there won’t help, but I was never much worried about that.
I am not yet at the stage where I can let it run wild in my lawn, but I do love the scent of clover. Happy Thursday Lynette. Allan
Right? It is such a lovely, fresh scent. It’s the weekend soon, so that’s always good! Actually, I’m very much looking forward to the day when I don’t have to care much about the weekend arrival. 🙂
My friend who retired before me said….Allan, when you are retired, there are no days off. I am good with that. There are 6 Saturdays and one Sunday in a retirement week. Cheers. Allan
I love that thought!
I have plenty of clover, but have yet to attract any deer, horses or cows to my yard. The photos would be priceless…
I haven’t ever had any cows or horses either, but deer, yes. Lots of them. And then there was the time when the coyotes were after the deer and cornered one between the garage and back fence. Initially, the deer hesitated but then jumped over the fence and ran down the back lane. The coyotes looked much like a defeated Wile E. Not really a clover story, but you know. 😉
As long as no falling anvils were involved…
Hahaha. Nope, not that I saw, unless that came later. 😉
Yay, clover! Interesting read.
Thank you very much. 🙂
