The height of the dandelion can range from as little as two inches to nearly a foot and a half.  Even without its well known flower, its oblong and pinnately lobed and toothed leaf rosettes are also easily identified.  The dandelion flower is atop a single stem rising from the base of the leaf rosette.  In the Spring, the dandelion leaves are tender and are a great addition to salads, or they can be cooked as are other greens.  The roots can be washed, dried and ground, and steeped in hot water to make a coffee-like drink.  In the past, the milky sap from the stem was used to remove warts.

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.
