Canada Mayflower (Maianthemum canadense) - 08a
(Canada Mayflower (Maianthemum canadense) - 08a) This is a bee's eye view of one of the tiny 1/8 inch flowers of the Canada mayflower. In this extreme close up, we can see why these tiny flowers are referred to as being star-shaped: note that the 4 petals of the flowers fold back away from the ovary, instead of cupping around it or above it, which makes the 4 stamens with their pollen grains, and the open ended pistil show predominately, and looking somewhat like a starburst.

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.
