Wild Sarsaparilla (Aralia nudicaulis) - 03
(Wild Sarsaparilla (Aralia nudicaulis) - 03) The flowers of the wild sarsaparilla  can only be seen by looking at an angle through the leaves or under the plant, as in this photo.  The flower stalk grows separately from the ground, adjacent to the leaf stalk which can be seen rising much higher than the flowers.  At the top of the photo, the leaf stems can be seen branching from the main stem.  We have also observed that only a fraction of the wild sarsaparilla plants have flowers.

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.
