(Clover, White Sweet (Melilotus alba) - 01a) In this photo, we take a closer look at the three-leafleted pinnate leaves that grow alternately along the stem, and at the way the flowering racemes grow from the leaf axils.  A native of Europe that was brought to North America, white sweet clover was imported for use as a forage crop.  This wild flower is also cultivated by bee keepers for the nectar it secretes, which led to the scientific name "meli" (Greek for "honey").

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.
