(Teasel, White (Dipsacus Sylvestris) - 07) Teasel bloom from July to October.  As shown in this photo, the blooms most often develop in bands around the head.  We have not been able to find any explanation for this phenomenon.  This photo also provides us a good side view of the thorns on the sepal.  Even though God cursed the ground with thorns and thistles, because of Adam's disobedience (Genesis 3:17-18), He sets upon them beautiful flowers to remind us of His grace.

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.
