Trefoil leaves

The trefoil leaves are very distinctive - very thin and delicate (some sources say this is the Irish shamrock).

A particularly beautiful & overlooked flower. Note the leaves taste of apple-peel, but some say that eating too many can lead to kidney-stones. Well done for not just assuming they were more wood anemone. The leaves can form stunning lime-green carpets at this time of year & once the flowers open they can be humming with nectar collectors

The leaves -

contain the same ingredient as rhubarb - oxalic acid. This is toxic in quantity, but a few leaves do perk up a salad!
