St. Johnswort, Common (Hypericum perforatum) - 04
(St. Johnswort, Common (Hypericum perforatum) - 04) In this bee's eye view we can clearly see the three pistil styles growing from the ovary (lower left of photo).  In the upper right of the photo, we get a good look at the black dots along the edge of the petal.  The literature didn't identify the composition of these black dots; but the black dots on the leaves contain oil, which we suspect these do, too.  The oil was extracted for healing wounds and skin irritations. The flowers and seeds were boiled into a tea to help heal urinary problems.

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.
