(Helleborine (Epipactis helleborine) - 01) We spotted these helleborine growing in our yard. This one is about 1 foot tall, but they can grow up to 3 feet in height.  Helleborine is a member of the orchid family (Orchidaceae), and was imported from Europe, where it is native.  The flower stock (raceme) in the background is going to seed.

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.
