All my life I have looked for four-leaf clovers and never found any until recently. Now I find them all the time, and in different areas of the town I live in. Today I found two four-leaf clovers and three five-leaf clovers. What is going on? Four-leaf clovers are supposed to be one out of 10,000 clovers and five-leaf clovers are one in a million. Am I the luckiest person alive? I don’t think so. I think something in the genetics of clovers has changed. A rare mutation is becoming more common. Is it the use of herbicides causing genetic mutations? Maybe the multi-leaf clovers pick up more sunlight for photosynthesis, don’t taste as good to rabbits, or produce more flowers for bees to pollinate? It would be a good science project for a kid to figure out the mystery.
