Canada Mayflower (Maianthemum canadense) - 09a
(Canada Mayflower (Maianthemum canadense) - 09a) As we zoomed in on this Canada mayflower, we could clearly see that the three leaves grow alternately along the stem below the bloom. It is also interesting to view the tiny hairs growing along the veins on the underside of the leaves, which can be seen in the top leaf which is still partially wrapped around the budding bloom at the top of the stem.

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.
