Mint, American or Wild (Mentha arvensis) - 06
(Mint, American or Wild (Mentha arvensis) - 06) The top of this wild American mint has broken off allowing us a more complete view of the 3/4 inch diameter whorl of flowers.  Each tiny, 1/4 inch long, wild mint flower has four petals, 4 stamens, and 1 pistil, but because the pistils and stamens are often damaged by bee activity, it is difficult to get a good photo of a complete flower (note the broken stamen on the lower leaf).

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.
