In the last week or so with the very warm temperatures, clover has exploded and abundant everywhere. Hayfields and pastures have greened up rapidly and it is mostly because of clover. Grass is there, but it isn't growing nearly as fat as clover. I am just very surprised to see it since we have been so hot and dry for the last few summers.

I am not a clover expert James and can't really tell the type yet. The ground is just carpeted with it. We usually have lots in the yard with small white flowers. RIt reminds me a bit of Ladino Clover, which I scattered over the pastures about 30 years ago. Some pink is mixed in occasionally. It will grow a bit taller in the pasture if the cows don't keep it mowed too close. The taller red clover is usually found in hayfields. We have been dry this winter but warm. we have had half of normal rainfall since Jan. 1. The warmth may have something to do with it, but being this dry now is not a good sign.
