Violet and Yellow Wood-sorrel are brightening up corners of the gardens and the edges of the yard, but their blooms are only out in the sun. Afternoon-shaded areas will have the ‘lucky clovers’ closing up their flowers.
As kids we pulled off the erect seed pods and ate them for a sour treat! The leaves are edible, too. Just add a few leaves to salads or make an iced tea from the steeped leaves, sweeten with honey or stevia and chill. The yellow or pink blossoms make great looking garnishes.
