(Whorled Loosestrife (Lysimachia quadrifolia) - 01) Mary spotted this whorled loosestrife growing in our yard.  Whorled loosestrife grow to heights of 1-3 feet and are easily identified by their 1/2 inch star-shaped flowers and whorls of usually 4 leaves with non-fringed petioles (leaf stems), which led to the name "quadrifloria."  Whorled loosestrife are members of the Primrose family, Primulaceae.

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.
