Indian Tobacco (Lobelia inflata) - 02
(Indian Tobacco (Lobelia inflata) - 02) The Indian tobacco flowers grow on a raceme, the end of which is shown in this close up view.  At the tip of the racemes are the flower buds, followed by the flowers, and then the seed pods.  The Indian tobacco flower is irregular with a two-lipped corolla.  The upper lip splits into two upright pointed lobes, and the lower lip is spreading with three lobes.  Between the lobes of the upper lip of the Indian tobacco flower is a "rod" made up of stamens and pistils.  We do not know what the greenish-yellow growth is on the lower lip.

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.
