    That is purple clover not red. Red clover is actual red. But still sounds wonderful and I guess the clover is just for the picture.

    I haven’t made the lemonade but I will when spring comes. I just remember as a child, my sister and I would go out and gather red clover. We would gather a big bundle and eat it because it was so lovely and sweet.
