This election has been ugly and divisive. Others have been. Others will be. Social media allowed everyone to be a campaigner and push their opinions, and mis-information, which made it all the more ugly.

The Prickly Rose […]

Generally I’m not a fan of the color pink, but this beauty caught my eye when it bloomed in the front yard of one of my neighbors.
