(The Moss Forest - The Sphagnum World - 04) On 3 April 2011 we took this and the following photos of a growth of sphagnum moss before all the fine feathery tips had opened. According to the literature, there are between 151 and 300 species of sphagnum moss, which when dried is sold commercially as peat moss. While living, sphagnum moss can hold up to 20 times its dry weight in water, which is very similar to most fresh green vegetables.

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.
