(Spotted Touch-Me-Not or Jewelweed (Impatiens capensis) - 04) The actual size of the spotted touch-me-not is about one inch long.  This enlarged photo is fifteen times that size, and depicts many other features of the wildflower.  Note that the stem and the sepal are attached near the "face" of the flower (photo-top), and that the petals extend downward to form the end of the "trumpet" or "spur".  The early morning dew has weighed down this flower, laying its head upon one of the leaves.  Dew drops glisten and form spherical reflecting mirrors as they hang from the lower edge of the leaf.

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.
