Horse-Nettle (Solanum carolinense) - 05
(Horse-Nettle (Solanum carolinense) - 05) This is a close-up look at some of the horse nettle berries.  The berries contain less of the toxic chemical, solanine, than the rest of the plant, and as a result, herb doctors used the fried orange berries as a sedative and anti-spasmodic.  Unfortunately, before we had a chance to photograph the ripe berries, someone had trampled down the horse nettle.

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.
