(Button Bush or Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) - 10a) This is a closer look at one of the buttonbush's round  ping-pong ball sized sphere of flowers with their projecting pistils.  Each tiny flower appears to have a narrow, 4-lobed, tubular corolla, which could be composed of four petals (we couldn't get close enough to make sure), 4 possible stamens within the corolla, and one projecting pistil.

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.
