Wood Sorrel is an Irish wild flower that, as the name suggests, grows in woodland and other shaded areas. As with many other woodland plants it flowers early in spring before the trees have come into leaf. This one was photographed in Ness Woods in County Derry, N Ireland, in late spring.

It has trifoliate leaves, each leaflet being heart-shaped. Hence its other common name “Wood Shamrock”. The leaves tend to fold up towards late afternoon or in rain. The flowers also protect themselves by closing up.

Botanical name: “Oxalis acetosella”.

This is part of my postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .
