Hi JoyceAnn. what is the difference between the violet wood sorrel and regular clover - other than the blooms. I think there is some growing in a recently cleared part of the yard and it looks like sorrel.
Hi Annette , Sorrel does have different type blooms , we have at least 3 different types growing here. But check-out the leaves , each leaf petal has a heart shape , clovers are round. Clover leaves are usually a darker green too.~ Green Blessings ~ JoyceAnn
Ah, ok; then what we have is clover. I will keep the heart shaped leaves in mind - thank you! =)
I wonder if a plant that is lowgrowing and yellow flowers withthe upside down heart shapedleaves is a realitive to thesorrel that I see growing aroundhere in a field.Looking forward to blackberries.God Bless You and Yours!!!
PS. I found a recipe forDandilion Fritters. I think I you posted thissite in the past. Theone with the Herb Game,or I found it through ablog you posted.If you want to check itout click on Jessie'sFront Porch Party Link.There is a link to iton my blog there.God Bless You and Yours!!!
Hi Flassie , We have a Yellow Wood-Sorrel , it has heart shaped leaves also. The leaves have a sour taste , they can be used in salads or used to make a drink like lemonade. I will try to find some to photograph.My field guide states to use in moderation , excessive consumption may inhibit calcium absorption.~ Green Blessings ~ JoyceAnn
Oh, Ok! I should take a photo too.I hope they haven't mowed it.The leaves sit to the sidesand the heart shaped leavesare upside-down.The other sorrel I have tastedhas larger leaves.Creative Kismet is having a artprint giveaway, just encase youwant to get in on it.

Thanks Flassie , for the link to the giveaway. Her art is wonderful , I love them all but choose " Resolve " as my favorite.I haven't had a chance to find yellow sorrel yet and it's raining today.~ Be Blessed ~ JoyceAnn
