(Day Lily (Hemerocallis fulva) - 05) Another distinguishing feature of the day-lily is the wavy margin (edge) of the petals.  It is interesting to note that the sepals, which are the same color as the petals, have very little of the wavy margin that is evident in the petals.   The sepals are between and below each of the three petals.  Also note how far away the pistil extends to the right from the six stamens, which we believe is to help prevent self-pollination.

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.
