Last rose of summer

Last of this year's rose flowers
There is a poignancy about flowers just before they begin to drop their peddles.  It seems they're saying, take notice of me now because tomorrow may be too late.  This urgency and beauty is magnified with a setting sun, which reinforces that message all the more.

In the case of roses, their lovely flowers are transformed into rose hips, the fruit of the plant. So it is that the flower must drop its pedals in order to leave behind fruit for the growth of future generations of plants.

This morning I'll be taking pictures of rose buds, the children in our churches Sunday School program.
