(Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) - 18) Another very interesting characteristic of the coltsfoot that differs from other composite flowers is that the disc flowers begin to bloom before the ray flowers completely open.  With most other composite flowers of the Aster family, the ray flowers open first.  Each tiny disc flower has five petals and one pistil.  From this photo we cannot determine the number of stamens.

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.
