Final Summer Blooms

Things seem to be coming to a close in my beds these days, with many of the flowers looking spent and brown. Here are some that are still looking good.
A newly opened yellow rose.

A William Shakespeare rose. This one is spectacular in person (it's an intense purply wine colour and the inside is bursting with ruffled petals), but my camera can't seem to register the colour properly. Every time I take a photo of it, it ends up looking slightly blurry with a neon pink tint to it. This is the best I could do.

Lovely yellow calendula.

I have a new found love affair with dahlias!
