(Indian Hemp (Apocynum cannabinum) - 05) The leaves of the Indian hemp grow opposite one another on the stems.  In this photo we can see a branch growing from a lower leaf axil.  The fibrous stems were used by Native Americans to make twine and rope.  The advantage of using these fibers is that they do not come apart in water.

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.
