(Yellow Wood-Sorrel - 02) In this close-up view of the yellow wood-sorrel, we can see more of the detail of the leaf structure, which is an easy way to identify this wild flower when not in bloom.  The three leaflets of the palmate leaf are heart shaped.  They look as though they had been folded, and it reminds me of when I was a child.  I was being taught how to make a paper heart for Valentines day by folding a piece of paper in half and then cutting half of the heart shape out from the fold.  When the paper was opened, we had perfect hearts, just like the leaflets of the yellow wood-sorrel.   Another way to confirm that it is a yellow wood-sorrel is to taste the leaflet.   It has a pleasant taste, somewhat like the sour taste of lemon, which is due to its oxalic acid content.

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.
