(Spotted Touch-Me-Not or Jewelweed (Impatiens capensis) - 02) This small patch of spotted touch-me-not wild flowers was growing along the roadside.  The oval, rounded-toothed, alternating leaves help to identify this wildflower when it is not in bloom.  The spotted touch-me-not can grow to six feet in height.  We have observed that even though the spotted tough-me-not likes wet shady places, it still seeks the sunlight.  The plants seem to grow taller only when they are competing for light.  These plants, which had no competition for light, were not much over two feet in height.

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.
