Day Lily (Hemerocallis fulva) - 03a
(Day Lily (Hemerocallis fulva) - 03a) here is also an inner beauty to the day-lily.  Note the way the six stamens and one pistil come forth from the yellow bowl of the flower.  The open end of the pistil is called the stigma, which is designed to receive the pollen grains of another day-lily, carried to it by an insect, so that the pollen can fertilize the ovules (seeds).  The pollen grains can be seen on the anthers atop the six stamens (we are looking at the back side of the anthers).

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.
