Trifolium repens

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A handful of white clover for Mother. She’ll place them in a paper vase–a small Dixie cup printed with a pink and yellow tulip pattern. On the kitchen windowsill, the bouquet will wilt in a few days time. But I’m her personal florist, and it’s summer–plenty more days ahead. I know she prefers my clovers over Dad’s red roses. My gifts aren’t apologies.
