leaflet length

As Ry Joyce has pointed out, the leaflets are a little longer and narrower than usual. However, the ID of Trifolium pratense is correct.

The explanation I think is that this is native Red Clover (var. pratense), whereas quite a lot of plants we see are of original agricultural or wildflower-seed origin (var. sativum).
