(Aster, New England (Aster novae-angliae) - 02b) In this close-up photo of the New England aster's ray flowers, we can see longitudinal veining and the pointed tips.  To us, the ray flowers seem to be narrower than those of the similar New York aster, which also has fewer ray flowers.  This feature, though not mentioned in the literature we reviewed, helps in identification.  The actual length of the ray flowers is about one-half inch.

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.
