(Butter and Eggs (Linaria vulgaris) - 04) This is a closer view of one of the butter-and-eggs stems, which looks like it will develop several more flowers lower on the stem.  The literature states that the butter-and-eggs blooms from May through October, but we didn't spot these until September.  There is only one species of butter-and-eggs which grows all across the northern two-thirds of the United States, though it is more prevalent in the eastern states.  One of the interesting features of the butter-and-eggs is the closed throat of the flowers which extends below the stem and calyx, and which are clearly visible on the lower two blooms.

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.
