(Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) - 02) Unfortunately, the black locust is considered to be an invasive species.  Their beautiful hanging flower clusters with their strong fragrance are believed by some people to compete with native species for pollinating bees.  We have lived here at Sleepy Hollow Lake since January 1980, and have seen absolutely no evidence of this; if anything, the black locust are being crowded out by native species.  From our perspective, we just enjoy the beauty of God's creation.

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.
