Wanted: botanist

At first glance I thought these were wood anemones but on looking closer I could see that they weren't. They have sort of three/four leaf clover leaves so maybe they're clover. I'll have to google.P.S. Googled and doesn't look right, so any suggestions?

They are lovely but I don't know what they are.

Maybe Jams would know, he is good on flowers?

wood sorrel also known as shamrock?

Look at this page for a comparison image.

Yes, katney, I'm sure you're right! Thank you.

Too late for St.Patrick's Day, but it's still shamrock . . .

An Irishman, one Paddy O'Murphy, proposed to his girl on St. Patrick's Day.
He gave her a ring with a synthetic diamond. The excited young lass showed
it to her father, a jeweller. He took one look at it and saw it wasn't real.

The young lass on learning it wasn't real returned to her future husband, and protested vehemently about his cheapness.

'In honour of St. Patrick's Day, ' he smiled 'I gave you a sham rock.' ;-)

Glad Katney identified this for you. Hope these shamrocks brought you lots of good luck, Liz!
