(Yarrow, or Milfoil (Achillea millefolium) - 03)  In this bee's eye view of the yarrow flowers, we can see why it is a member of the composite family (according to several of our sources).  The little flowering "domes" are really composed of many individual flowers, each having four petals, a pistil and stamens.  The broad white petal-like structures that surround the flowering domes are most likely ray-flowers, though we could not confirm this in the literature.  The USDA classifies yarrow as a member of the aster family, with no explanation as to the reason.  Our other references indicate that asters are also members of the composite family.

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.
