Clover ~ Trifolium L.

I was looking up from my books “Flora In Color” to find out which kind of clover this is. I think it’s Zigzag Clover (Trifolium medium L.) or Red Clover (Trifolium pratense L.) Either way, I love these clover flowers because of how it changes from a bud to into full bloom and, of course, because of its colors.

I took some pictures yesterday but they were no good at all. The wind was too strong making the plants swaying too much. I went back today. Also today is windy but not as much as yesterday. I brought my tripod with me today but still it was pretty hard to get sharp enough pictures.

June has passed way too quickly. It’s 1st of July tomorrow. Wishing you all a wonderful July ūüôā

Summer

It’s officially summer now. The weather forecast had predicted real summer days to begin in the first week of June. Yesterday, the officially, first day of summer was windy, cold and rainy. “Iltalehti” the afternoon newspaper, title said “heat-wave cancelled”. ¬†I hope it on Saturday, at least, will not rain because that is when the ¬†Helsinki Samba Carnaval takes place.

We call them midsummer flowers. The color ranges from mauve to blue even white depending on soil conditions.

Have a great summer !
