(Virginia Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum virginianum) - 02a) If we look at the budded flower head of the Virginia mountain mint that hasn't bloomed yet, we can count at least 45 buds, but the flowers never bloom at the same time.  The flowers on each flattened head begin to bloom from the outer perimeter inward toward the center.  Another distinguishing characteristic of the Virginia mountain mint is the the flowers petals usually have purple dots.

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.
