(Spotted Touch-Me-Not or Jewelweed (Impatiens capensis) - 01) The early morning dewdrops on these spotted touch-me-not leaves glisten in the sunlight giving an added jewel-like quality to this species of Jewelweed.  There are five species of jewelweed.  Two of the species grow in the eastern United States and are known as touch-me-nots, because when touched, the ripe seed pods "explode" as a means of scattering their seeds.

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.
