Flowers in the Clover

Flowers and Clover

DSC07987-copy1.jpgFlowers in the clover, very small flowers they may be but very very pretty.  I’m sitting here typing this at 5:48 in the morning. Outside the window here in Colonia Del Rey RV Park in Flower Bluff.  The crickets are just singing away.  You can hear the traffic from the street increasing as people begin their day going off to work.  It’s so strange to hear these insects at this time of the year, chirping away outside.  All those years in Alaska made one forget what music it really is to hear crickets in the grass.

    The leaves look like clover (maybe red clover?) but the flower is oxalis which has similar trefoil leaves but they’re more round and don’t have that fuzz on them.
    We don’t have any crickets here yet.
