A Little Luck

Mortgage and Lending with First Heritage Mortgage NMLS #: 938761

I stumbled upon a 4-leaf clover while on a walk with a friend, and snapped this picture. My friend told me she had never found one before, and this seems to be the consensus. As a child I used to look for clovers with my cousin and I would find 10 to 20 clovers in one sitting. I would take my "precious treasures" home and press them in books. I always thought my cousin was finding them too, but she confessed recently she was taking 2 clovers and putting them together! Have you ever found a 4-leaf clover?

I was intrigued by the four leaf clover when I was young so I looked for them. There are pretty easy to find in a patch of clover, it just takes a little time. My friends would be amazed at the find.  :)

Hello Whitney ... Vegas Bob has looked for four leaf clovers all his life, and never found one. And if you would 10-20 four leaf clovers in one sitting, you are a very "Lucky" person. Please let me know if you ever visit Las Vegas because I will take you to the gambling tables and bet the same as you and make some $$$$$. Your post has been featured to the group:

Hi Whitney -- interesting question.  

I probably "hunted" for four leaf clovers but I must admit I can't recall ever finding one -- now you have proof as your photo shows.  

I must admit, I love the story of your cousin who pasted some of those of the two leaf variety together to create a four leaf clover -- very clever.

Whitney, I used to find them all the time - when I looked for them!  Maybe it's time to go on a four leaf clover search.
