This is my post for the letter O in the Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge. My theme is plants.
Another botanical name provides the right letter. Of course there are other plants beginning with O such as orchid. I even have a photo of one growing in the wild!
The oxalis is less exotic. Wood sorrel is one species of oxalis. As its common name suggests it thrives under trees. It has distinctive trefoil leaves and grows from tiny bulbs. The photo was taken at Talkin Tarn.
If I find any of these in the garden, I weed them out. The white flowers are not spectacular.
While clover sometimes produces four leaves on a stem instead the more usual three, I am not aware of any four-leaved oxalis. Does anyone know if these occur?
There are very short posts on Sue’s Trifles for the A to Z in April Challenge.
