(Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) - 01) The milkweed flower, which blooms from June to August, is not the large clusters we saw in the previous photo, but a cluster of many individual 1/2 inch flowers formed into a "ball" shape.  Each milkweed flower is on a single stem radiating out from the center of the cluster and each has five cup-shaped petals, five united stamens, and a column of five pistils.

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.
