(Nightshade, Bittersweet Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara) - 05) The leaves of the nightshade are ovate and have irregular toothing or notching.  In the leaf at the top of the photo the notches are almost to the stem, giving the leaf the appearance of having three leaflets (one large and two small); but this is only one deeply notched leaf.  The nightshade leaves grow alternately along the vine.  We can also observe the trumpet-shaped corolla in the side view of the flower in the lower left of the photo.

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.
