Orange Hawkweed Male and Female Flowers
(Orange Hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum or Pilosella aurantiaca) - 02a) From our own observations of this beautiful wildflower, it appears that the outer ray flowers are male and the inner flowers are female. Note that the outer flowers of the orange hawkweed have curled stamens with pollen grains, and that the inner flowers have Y-shaped pistils. Also note that each flower has two petals, a longer bottom one and a shorter upper one, with the stamen or pistil protruding out from between them.

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.
