Columbine or Rock Bell (Aquilegia canadensis) - 14
(Columbine or Rock Bell (Aquilegia canadensis) - 14) This is one of the few photos we've been able to take in which we can distinguish all five pistils: there are two to the left, two close together in the center, and one to the right.  We also find it very interesting to see the way the stamens develop: there seem to be three groupings, one group near the top of the flower (bottom of photo) that are straight and surround the pistils, and below that are two other groups that are curled.  In this photo, we can also see some of the crinkled surface of the petals.

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.
