(Rue Anemone (Thalictrum thalictroides or Anemonella thalictroides) - 01a) One of the key identifying characteristics of the rue anemone is the leaf structure.  Each roundish leaf has three lobes on top and two where the stem is attached.  The literature says that three leaves form a whorl from a solitary stock.  In this photo, we believe that there are six leaves and three flowers in the whorl.  This whorl emanating from the top of the stalk causes the leaves and flowers to tremble in the slightest breeze.  This led to the rue anemone's common name "windflower".  The name "anemone" is derived from the Greek word for "wind".  The rue anemone grows to heights of from four to eight inches.

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.
