Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) - 02
(Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) - 02) The name "dandelion" is a corruption of the original French name given it by early botanists, who thought the sharp projections from the borders of the leaves resembled the teeth of a lion (dent de lion).  Unlike most home owners, we look forward to seeing the dandelions blooming in our lawn each spring, along with the violets, one of which can be seen in the upper left of the photo.

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.
