I find nature endlessly fascinating. This beautiful flower is a close up image of a common red clover blossom. The red clover is an edible legume found in much of the midwest and the northeast US. It is commonly used as food for cattle, and increasingly as a winter cover crop to bind nitrogen and protect the soil. The flowers and leaves are edible and the plant has been used for medicine in Native American and Chinese cultures. And despite the name, blossoms are typically pink. Their color and shape warm my heart with five soft pink petals and a tubular cone for each flower.
