Is this the last rose of summer? It's supposed to start raining. If it's heavy enough, it will pound the petals off the flowers and the leaves off the trees. There's a cheerful thought for you!

However, remember the poet's lines: Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying.

Don't worry about the rest of the poem, it's really sexist and somewhat depressing. Focus on the lovely yellow rose.

DKH you are too funny. And that is in really good shape - not a black spotted leaf to be seen!
