This attractive herb, Lotus corniculatus, commonly called Bird's Foot Trefoil (Traed yr Oen or Lamb's Foot  in Welsh) is a many stemmed perennial herb, it can reach from six to twenty four inches in height and grows in low lying areas. Each leaf of the bird's foot is divided into five smaller leaflets; the leaflets in the upper part resemble a clover, while the lower two leaves form a pair at the basal region along each leaf stalk. From June to September, numerous small and yellow to orange colored flower heads form clusters at the ends of the long stalks and these eventually produce slender seedpods that all end in a peculiar hornlike tip. The common name "bird's foot" is a reference to the slender seedpods which look like a bird's foot or talons, and the word "trefoil" is an allusion to the resemblance of this plant to the red clover, which is also known as the “trefoil” plant.

The herb's planet is the Sun and it is traditionally worn to increase fertility and to raise sexual potency for both men and women. In many areas the trefoil is considered a representation of the three-fold nature of things and is used to invoke the blessings of the Lady. 

Physically it is used as a poultice to reduce swelling and bruising. 

The flowers of some forms of the plant contain traces of prussic acid and so the plants can become mildly toxic when flowering. They are completely innocuous when dried.

I gather most herbs and flowers locally and dry them on the farm. Care is taken to ensure that the herbs and flowers are at their strongest and most powerful when they are gathered. None are collected from areas close to a road. They are placed in this lovely miniature glass flask and added to a real silver chain so that you can carry them at all times.
