Crimson and Lucky Clover Over and Over

 Have you ever found a four-leaf-clover?  Well, I have found about 60 in the last 2 months. I'm finding them in 2 different locations which are not near each other. Perhaps I'd find them in other places too, but I haven't scoured the city yet. It began as a surprise as I walked my dog, then started to get a little weird.. Now I just expect to find them. I don't remember ever finding one before in my life, or even having any hopes of finding one. Now I think about them all the time and have a large collection pressed in my "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince".
According to the internet, you only will find a four-leaf-clover among 10,000 regular 3-leaved clover. But I can tell you it's not completely random. They grow in concentrated areas. The four leaved clusters are attached to plants with regular 3-leaved clusters, but nearby, there will soon be another 4-leaf.  Also, this has to be "White Clover"...not other clover look-alikes.
 
I started pressing them in a book, and didn't even pick every one I saw once it started getting rediculous.. But then I got this idea to make them into charms. Now I'm making these glass charms to give to special people.

I see this is an old post, but just came upon it. Since last summer I ave been having a similar experience- now I see / almost expect to see them all the time, too. I'm finding 3-7 at a time, and so e 5-leaf & 2 7 leafs today!! Even if they don't bring luck they are still fun to find! One ferns pointed out its like a way of stopping to smell the roses! :)

Really like your charm idea! I have started pressing them & gifting them in 2x3" self laminating pouches for friends to keep in their wallet. You've got some good ones there!

Hi, The clovers are not inside the glass. They are glued to one side using clear Mod Podge craft glue. The glue hardens & seals them.

When i was a child, mother used to take us out and let us try and find a 4 leaf clover. she said it was a good luck find.
