Common Barberry (Berberis vulgaris L.) - 01
(Common Barberry (Berberis vulgaris L.) - 01) We spotted this common barberry growing on the edge of the woods along the side of the road.  The common barberry is a native of Europe and was brought to the United States for medicinal use.  It is considered an invasive species and has been blamed for causing wheat rust or mildew, but we have also read that in more recent times that this claim has not be substantiated, but that both plants are susceptible to the same rust disease.

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.
