Lonely CLover

(Toledo, OH) This is another plant that, as a homeowner, I am supposed to despise, yet I find clover blossoms to be useful in attracting bees to pollinate my garden.

I used to spend hours uprooting the stuff, but nowadays I just mow it and let it alone.

As a legume, clover has the ability to affix atmospheric nitrogen in its root nodules, and it is often used crop rotation to replenish soil that has been depleted of nitrogen. So there; my acquiescence toward clover has a biological logic.

I much prefer clover in my lawn to the dandelions.

In a few places I am even blessed with violets ;-)
