Northern Catalpa (Catalpa speciosa) - 16a
(Northern Catalpa (Catalpa speciosa) - 16a) This is a closer look at a leaf sprout of a northern catalpa, in which we can see the details of the underside of a leaf.  Notice that the leaf is comprised mostly of veins at this stage of its growth.  As the leaf matures the veins will grow in length and new cell growth will occur between the veins; there will not be any more major veins than those present in this leaf.  Compare this "baby leaf" structure to the mature leaves in the other photos, particularly the underside of the leaf at the bottom of photo 12.

lamb-right lamb-left 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.
