Your rose is beautiful but it's sad to hear of your living conditions. We take so much for granted here in the USA. I'm glad that things have improved for you and hope that they continue to do so. Your photographs are amazing.
Beautiful shot of the rose Susan, we have large cities here with the same problem and even in the more rural areas people will just throw their trash out of their car instead of taking it home or putting it in the trash..even in parks where it is just a few steps from a trash can. People are the same the world over...some good...some not. I love that you two are being persistant in bringing beauty to your area.
