Columbine or Rock Bell (Aquilegia canadensis) - 08a
(Columbine or Rock Bell (Aquilegia canadensis) - 08a) The common name of the columbine apparently comes from the appearance of the flower looking to some people as a circles of doves (Latin: columba) drinking around a fountain.  An equal stretch of the imagination led to the generic or scientific name, Aquilegia, because the knobbed spurs looked like the talons of an eagle (Latin: aquila).  The head of a visiting ant can be seen looking out from under the left side of the columbine flower.

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.
