WHAT IS LEFT OF OLD HARVEY HIGH...

For posterity I photographed for you what's left of the high school I attended. I can only hope the land can somehow by purchased by the nearby Lake Erie College, whose history is intertwined with Harvey and with the formation of our local educational history.
Rose Moore, Thomas W. Harvey High School Class of 1958.

WILD MORNING ROSE

The unfettered rays of a brilliant rising sun make the background trees look bleached, but even in the shadows, my colorful vintage rose stands up for itself.
The rose seems partly wild; it exudes a lovely fragrance, but you want to stay away from its vicious thorns.
It stands equally against brutal winters and hot, dry summers without extra help from herbicides or fertilizers and it seems to need no coddling.
You can lop it to the ground and it quickly grows again.
I like this rose.
