Since I was child I've been reading and finding four-leaf clovers, stashing the clover in books already read or to be read later. I sometimes find them years later, but just as often I don't. I'd say I've probably found over a thousand four-leaf clovers in my lifetime--either making them not as rare as one might think or revealing I have a natural eye for seeing them. As a kid I used to make a game of it like how many could I find in a summer (600 was my record) or how many more leaves could I find (9 was my record for that). It never occurred to me to take pictures of them as a kid or even to keep track of them really. That is something that happened as I got older and started to find them more infrequently. I think of all those clovers like I think of reading; you sometimes find what you expect to find. Other times the expectation is enough in itself. I love starting new books and seeing all I've read at the end of the year. The stories read each year create an experience uniquely my own.
