(Yellow Iris or Yellow Flag Iris (Iris pseudacorus) - 02) The construction of the yellow iris flower is quite interesting: The large yellow petal-like structures with the dark veining are really the 3 sepals. The shorter petal-like structures that partially cover the sepals are really the 3 styles. Three stamens are hidden under the the styles. In the center of the flower are the 3 tiny (by comparison) petals. The total flower measures about 3 inches across.

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.
