Mallow, Common (Malva neglecta) - 02a
(Mallow, Common (Malva neglecta) - 02a) In this photo we can see two of the beautiful common mallow flowers beginning to open.  Another reason this wildflower was probably imported was for its medicinal uses.  According to the literature, all parts of the plant have astringent properties that counteract inflammations and sooth and soften the skin when applied locally.  When eaten, common mallow has laxative and diuretic properties.

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.
