Wild Parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) - 09a
(Wild Parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) - 09a) This is a close-up of some of the newly opening wild parsnip flowers.  When they first begin to open the five petals are tightly rolled up against the ovary which is topped by the beginning of the pistil, or at least the stigma.  Between each rolled up petal is one of the five stamens.  The flowers send forth their stamens even before the petals completely unroll.

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.
