(Bur-Cucumber (Sicyos angulatus) - 02) The leaves of the bur-cucumber have five lobes, although the two closest to the stem are less distinguishable as separate lobes, since they tend to grow into the adjacent lobes.  In this photo we can also see both the flower stock and the prickly fruit below.  Although we could not find anything in the literature about the relationship between the flower and fruit, it appears that the fruit forms off the main stem and not directly from the flowers, as is most common.

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.
