(Elderberry, American, Black, or Common (Sambucus canadensis L.) - 28a) This is a very close up look at the 3-5 mm (1/8 - 3/16 inch) diameter fruit of the common elderberry. In this photo the color of the fruit could be considered to be a deep purple to black. The fruit of the elderberry is edible, but the other parts of the plant are not, as they contain high concentrations of calcium oxalate.

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.
