Thanks. I was surprised myself how good that pic turned out considering I use the cellphone cam and close ups usually come out blurry beercheer.gif

Thanks for the wonderful pics Octo. yay.gif

I use to drink red clover tea which is purported to purify the blood and liver, which I should start making teas again.

Now, white clover is a whole other animal it seems.

Quote:Like many clovers, white clover contains the estrogenic isoflavone genistein which has cancer-preventative and antioxidant activity.

But, the leaves and flowers, as with most other plants, have different health benefits.

Isn't it reassuring to know that nature provides?

I promised you, US, to take a pic of the rocks close to the house. These boulders are a common sight around here.
