Butter and Eggs (Linaria vulgaris) - 03
(Butter and Eggs (Linaria vulgaris) - 03) The actual size of the butter-and-eggs flower is about one inch long from the top of the upper lip to the bottom of the closed throat, or about one-thirteenth the size of this full-sized photo.  The flower of the butter-and-eggs is formed by a 2-lipped corolla which is spurred at the base.  The upper lip has two lobes which stand erect.   The lower lip has three lobes with an orange colored base which close the throat.   The butter-and-eggs, at close inspection, seems to have a hairy "tongue" resting on the top of the lower lip.  We find ourselves constantly thanking God for little wonders, such as the butter-and-eggs, which bring joy to our souls.  Let us work together to protect and preserve all that God has given us.

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.
