(White Avens (Geum canadense) - 02) We have wondered about some of the differences we have observed in white avens plants that were not mentioned in the literature: the main stems were a deep reddish color while the branch stems were green, and the stems and underside of the leaves were hairy.  The flowers of the white avens are about 1/2 inch across, with 5 rounded white petals and 5 pointed green sepals of the same length.  As the flowers mature, the sepals curl downward, so that they may have to be lifted to verify that they are approximately the same length as the petals.  White avens flowers also have numerous stamens and numerous pistils with hooked styles.

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.
