Daisy (Chrysanthemum leucanthemum) - 03
(Daisy (Chrysanthemum leucanthemum) - 03) The central yellow disk of the daisy has an almost hypnotic appearance as if it were in motion.  The daisy has an acrid tasting juice which grazing animals avoid.  The crushed leaves were used for healing bruises which led to the name, bruisewort.  The juice was also thought to prevent gout.  Perhaps the reason was that the acrid taste led to a loss of appetite, and in turn to eating less animal flesh which would reduce the major cause of gout.  It was also thought to stunt the growth of dogs, perhaps for the same reason (loss of appetite).

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.
