Lucky 4 Leaf Clovers

image Have you ever found a four leaf clover? Your odds of finding one are about 1 in 10,000. They are a rare occurrence found among the common 3 leaf clover, or shamrock, which occasionally produces a fourth leaf. There are other plants that may be mistaken for true four leaf clovers. These plants always have four leaves. A real four leaf clover is a mutation from the trifolium repens plant and typically has a smaller fourth leaf than the other three leaves.

Superstition holds that finding one will bring good luck. Ancient druids believed that four leaf clovers had a great value and considered them a sign of luck. Many people today share this belief. In 1620, the English author and politician, Sir John Melton wrote that “If a man walking in the fields finds any four-leaved grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing.”

Legend holds that each leaf of a four leaf clover has a special meaning. The first leaf is said to represent hope, the second faith, the third love, and the fourth luck.

Do you feel that a four leaf clover or other good luck charm or symbol has ever brought you luck?
