(Wild Strawberry (Fragaria vesca) - 01) In early spring we begin to see the distinctive palmate (meaning that the leaflets radiate out from a single point of attachment) leaf structure of the wild strawberry.  Each of the three leaflets are oval-shaped and sharply toothed.   Shortly after the leaves appear, the wild strawberry begins to bloom, and can continue to do so into July.  The height of wild strawberries can range from 2 to 6 inches, and they are quite adept at staying below the "cut-line" in lawn areas while continuing to bloom and produce fruit.

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.
