Habitat: Lawns, pastures and roadsides
Uses: The leaves may be eaten. Some people claim that the other parts of the plant (shoots, stems, flowers, seeds and roots) are also edible, though tough and not very nice to eat.

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.
