Mint, American or Wild (Mentha arvensis) - 02
(Mint, American or Wild (Mentha arvensis) - 02) This is a close up view of a few of the American mint's four-petaled flowers in one of the clusters.  The flower color of the American mint is either a pale lavender or a light purple.  The wild American mint leaves can be used as a flavoring or seasoning, as can its relatives, rosemary, sage, thyme, and marjoram.   When the mint leaves are dried, they make a wonderfully flavored tea, and young fresh sprigs (before flowering) add flavor and make a great garnish for ice tea.

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.
