(Curled Dock (Rumex crispus) - 01) Curled dock can grow up to four feet in height.  The tiny flowers of the curled dock are green, which turn a rich brown after they go to seed. The whitish dots in the center of the individual flowers are reflected light.  They bloom from June to August.  The curled dock gets its common name from its dark color (Old English "docce") when it goes to seed, and from the wavy and curled lanceolate leaf edges.

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.
