This is one of the oxalis plants Dave. Because of that dark splodge in the centre it is known in some places as the 'iron cross' clover.

I think it's tetraphylia with the four leaves. I was given some a few years ago as a gift from a friends garden and every year I have to haul masses of it out as it seeds everywhere.

Very pretty though.
squirrels are often out their trees but never short of nuts.

Squirrels are fast off the mark Dave! By the time I read your post ol' Fluffy had been there, done the job & got the T shirt to prove it!  RedFaced:-(

In future ou'll have to tell your friends "I don't - but I know a squirrel that does"!!!  ROL :-))
