(Foxglove Beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis) - 02) In this photo of the foxglove beardtongue we can see five petals that form the tubular corolla (the petals taken collectively).  The open end or "mouth" of the flower has a two-lobed upper "lip", and a three-lobed lower "lip".  The five stamens can be seen inside the open "mouth" of the flower: four of them above with anthers (dark), and the fifth sterile stamen covered with hairy filament, lying on the bottom, forming the  "bearded tongue".

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.
