Greek Valerian (Polemonium reptans) - 02a
(Greek Valerian (Polemonium reptans) - 02a) In this photo, we can see another way of identifying the Greek valerian.  The stamens of the Greek valerian do not extend beyond the corolla, or open end of the flower; while in the Jacob's ladder, they extend well beyond the corolla.  By looking at the sides of the flowers, as we are in this photo, we can easily observe that the stamens do not extend beyond the corolla; only the stigma at the top of the pistil can be seen projecting beyond the corolla.

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.
