Oxalis corniculata

Creeping Woodsorrel
Ekşi yonca

from Wikipedia:

Creeping Woodsorrel (Oxalis corniculata) [Not to be confused with Yellow Woodsorrel, or Oxalis stricta], is a somewhat delicate-appearing, low-growing, herbaceous plant in the family Oxalidaceae. It has a narrow, creeping stem that readily roots at the nodes. The trifoliate leaves are subdivided into three rounded leaflets and resemble a clover in shape. Some varieties have green leaves, while others have purple leaves, like the Oxalis corniculata var. atropurpurea shown here. The leaves have inconspicuous stipules at the base of each petioles.

The fruit is a narrow, cylindrical capsule, 1 to 2 cm long and noteworthy for its explosive discharge of the contained, 1 mm long seeds.

This species is cosmopolitan in its distribution, and its place of origin is unknown. It is regarded as weed in gardens, agricultural fields, and lawns.

The leaves of wood sorrel are quite edible, with a tangy taste. A drink can be made by infusing the leaves in hot water for about 10 minutes, sweetening and then chilling. The entire plant is rich in Vitamin C. Although any wood sorrel is safe in low dosages, it must be noted that if eaten in large quantities over a length of time it can inhibit calcium absorption by the body.

Hi Sayat,
We have a very similar shamrock species with yellow flowers growing now, you can compare seeing the picture in my gallery. Well exposed but a bit blurred, maybe because the lack of light or cloudy conditions
Best regards

Hi Sayat.
Thanks for interest and kindness.
I like your nice art shot of the beautiful flower and excellent reproduction of its featured. Details are so attractive as well as the pleasant colours and very nice BG. My compliments and kind regards.

Bonjour Sayat,
Tr鑚 joli ton petit soleil, que tu nous offres en ce d饕ut d'automne.

Hello Sayat,
You've captured beautiful flowers, with fine details and nice composition.
Just a little bit soft I think, but still lovely shot!
Well presented!
TFS and regards,

Hi Sayat,
Very good details and colours. Informative note. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Please do include the "exif" information also. That gives us idea about the camera settings.

Hi Sayat,

amazing photo. I think the lightning is good, composition interesting. Very good colour combination. Well done. tfs. steve

Hi Sayat,

Nice diffused shot and very pleasing on the eye. Looks like you were working with very poor light, which explains a little motion blur. Perhaps posting the image at around 650, rather then the full 800 might have help retain a level mof sharpness.

Kind regards,


SUperbes d騁ails et magnifiques couleurs avce beau BG qui met le tout en valeur.
