St. Johnswort, Common (Hypericum perforatum) - 02a
(St. Johnswort, Common (Hypericum perforatum) - 02a) A native of Asia, St. Johnswort was imported to the United States by European emigrants, some of whom used to collect the plants on St. John's Eve, June 24th, and hang them on their doors to ward off evil spirits.  The dew, as shown in this photo, was collected in the morning of St. John's Day because it was believed that it was a good eye lotion.

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.
