Sow-Thistle, Common (Sonchus oleraceus) - 05
(Sow-Thistle, Common (Sonchus oleraceus) - 05) The common sowthistle has alternate leaves are up to 10" long and 2" across. The leaves become smaller and more sparsely distributed the higher up the central stem they grow. Each leaf has an odd pinnate shape (pinnatifid) with deep triangular lobes; its margins are dentate with soft prickles. The upper leaves are more likely to be entire or have shallow lobes, as can be seen on this one.

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.
