Clovers are extremely common weeds of lawns and other areas. There may be some issues with oxalic acid if you eat too many of them.

I have taken a heap of clover pictures over the years, to put on this page when I finally got around to making it, though for some reason I can't find any of them at the moment. The one below I took yesterday with my mobile phone.
