Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) - 02
(Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) - 02) This is a roadside milkweed waiting for the return of the monarch butterflies; but alas, they haven't returned this year.  We don't know whether it is the result of spraying for the West Nile Virus or as the result of the killing of more than 20,000,000 monarchs in Mexico.  The monarch butterflies migrate there each fall and return here in the spring.  In any event, it is an environmental disaster.   Since monarchs are believed to return to the areas where their mothers laid their eggs on the milkweed, it is doubtful if they will return in the near future.

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.a
