(Clover, White Sweet (Melilotus alba) - 01) White sweet clover, a member of the Pea family (Leguminosae), can grow to a height of eight feet.  Most of the ones we have seen are less than four feet in height.  To simplify identification of the white sweet clover, we look for these two features: the pinnate leaves with three oval shaped, finely toothed leaflets, and the white flowered, long narrow racemes that arise from leaf axils.

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.
