(Blue Flag Iris (Iris versicolor) - 08) The blue flag iris was cultivated by the Native Americans for medicinal purposes. The rhizomes (roots) were used as a cathartic and, when dried and powdered, were made into a poultice for sores and bruises. God's gift of this amazing "orchid" of the north is something we should all cherish and protect.

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.
