Six-year-old Iyla-Rose Willden may live in one of the luckiest houses in Louth after discovering a rare five-leaf clover in her garden.
Iyla, who attends Eastfield Infants’ and Nursery School in Louth, has already been showered with good luck after having a haul of 20 four-leaf clovers which she has found over the last few weeks at her home in Chatsworth Drive.
But her latest find, a rare five-leaf clover, is even luckier and is said to attract money.
The odds of finding such a clover stand at 20,000 to one, the same odds as a blind golfer hitting a hole-in-one
Iyla is absolutely delighted with her find. She said: “I am really excited to have found a five-leaf clover after only finding three and four-leaf clovers.
“I have asked my mum to laminate the five-leaf clover for me so I can show it to all of my friends at school.”
Iyla’s mum Stacie Day couldn’t believe the luck with her daughter’s discovery.
She added: “I was at work at the time Iyla found the rare clover, my partner Craig Willden called me to say that she had found one. I couldn’t believe it until I got home and saw it for myself.
“So we all did some research on the five-leaf clover and discovered how rare a find it actually was.
“Now Iyla is really excited to show her friends and then I am going to put it in her keepsake box that she has.”
The five-leaf clover is a mutation just like a four-leaf clover, but it is however, much less common.
