It is Autumn, right?

Over the weekend I was pulling out of a shopping center on Rt 40 when the distant treeline of Patapsco State Park caught my eye:
That, my friends, is a shade of yellow only found in the autumn.
Look at how magnificent and fiery those trees are colored.
I love autumn!
So imagine my surprise when less than an hour later i see this on the back of my house:

Amid the coloring and dying plants of autumn the gangly, pink, climbing rose bush had bloomed again.
Wait a gosh darned second here!
Roses are summer flowers and this thing looked deader than a doornail just a few weeks ago and pink, though delightful, is just not in my autumnal palette.
Silly roses!
It's sleepy time for you!
