Mint, American or Wild (Mentha arvensis) - 01
(Mint, American or Wild (Mentha arvensis) - 01) The American mint grows in clusters or clumps from an underground stem in moist places.  This mint plant was photographed along our shore line where it grows up through the blue shale rip-rap.  The flowers of the American mint form in clusters in axils of leaves, as can be seen in the central plant and in bud clusters in the lower left of the photo.  (The larger buds in the upper right of the photo are from another wildflower and not mint.)

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.
