(Birdsfoot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus) - 02) This photo, enlarged 20 times, gives us a way of seeing the detail of the 1/2 inch flower of the birdsfoot trefoil.  This wildflower is a member of the Pea family.  The palmate seed pods of the birdsfoot trefoil resemble a bird's foot, which give the plant its name.  These pods were cooked and eaten by the Native Americans.

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.
