(Pussy Willow (Salix discolor) - 11) The seeds of the pussy willow are held just firmly enough so that they will not fall out by themselves.  But when the wind begins to blow strongly enough to allow the seeds to be carried away, the seeds are pulled loose from the ovaries and become air borne.  Some of the empty and partially empty ovaries can be seen in this photo.  The small dark oval shapes are the seeds.

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.
