LAST ROSE OF SUMMER?

This will probably be the last of the peace roses for the year. Somebody flipped the switch and it looks like the rainy (sort of ) season has started.

Another nice shot of a nice drippy rose. For all our rainy reputation we actually only have about five months when we can count on any kind of rain. Down in this part of the valley this time of year if it doesn't rain it's foggy for most of the day. I think it's because this end of the vally is like a big bowl.  We have mountains on three sides down here and you have to go through a hilly section heading north to Salem. So the air gets cool, the ground is still warm and it gets kind of deary. It's kind of hard to believe we had temperatures over ninety just about three weeks ago. Ah well, something to look forward to as we go into the dark time of the year. But the rose is still pretty.

I might feel a bit melancholy except for the fact that I'm sick of this lingering '07 Summer!!!  Bring on Autumn!!!!
