(Yarrow, or Milfoil (Achillea millefolium) - 02) In this photo we can get a closer look at how several flowering stem branches form a relatively flat-topped corymb.  The yarrow escaped from cultivation after its importation from Europe where it was used as a medicinal plant.  The yarrow's scientific name "Achillea" comes from the legend that Achilles discovered its healing properties and used it to treat the wounds of his soldiers at the siege of Troy.

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.
