(Japanese Barberry (Berberis thunbergii) - 01) The Japanese barberry is non-native species that has naturalized into the countryside from ornamental garden bushes. This bush was photographed in the second week of May when it was in fill bloom, but since the flowers are small and hang down below the leaves on the branches, they are hard to see. Japanese barberry is a thorny bush that can grow from 2 to 8 feet tall and spread out to about 5 feet wide.

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation. Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion. It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
