Mint, American or Wild (Mentha arvensis) - 05
(Mint, American or Wild (Mentha arvensis) - 05) In this photo we are looking sideways at a whorl of wild American mint flowers.  The whole cluster of flowers is only 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide (top to bottom in photo).  The divided tops of the pistils can be seen extending beyond the stamens to help insure cross pollination from a visiting bee.

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.
