Circular black spots 1/4 inch in diameter appear on upper leaf surfaces. Each black spot has a feathery margin and is surrounded by a yellow halo. As the spots enlarge and coalesce, the entire leaf turns yellow and falls from the plant. Purplish or brownish spots and streaks may appear on canes. The picture i saw on the net was the same as yours and it says it is a fungus
I have to agree, it's bacterial.
Here is another link with some more info as well.

I have this urge to get a flashlight and go check my plants...we've been having some really odd HEAVY sudden rains here in Atlanta.

Coming from anyone else I'd take this with a grain of salt. I'm in the neighbor state below you. I will definitely keep a closer eye on the rains around here. I have also felt something is not quite right in the rains lately. Even small uneventful storms put me on a heightened alert. Thank you for bringing this up.

UH...oh....I'm gonna have to look myself! I'm in Charleston right below you! I'm gonna have a good look in the morning. It rained today and yesterday here. That's the first rain in over a week and a half but that doesn't look good. Thanks for the heads up! S&F.

That's very strange. I too live in NC but I haven't noticed anything like that. I guess it's possible that the oil spill is affecting us but I live on the coast so you would think I would have noticed something like this before you if it was the oil. Chemtrails? Maybe.

I'm about an hour north of the OP. I can't speculate as to the cause and I havn't noticed anything like this at my house. I've got tomatoes, squash, zuccini, and peppers. Maybe it's fairly localized. Keep us informed Boondock. Maybe it hasn't quite reached me yet.

If it is from the gulf it would necessarily have to land everywhere.

I can go back and find the leaves, however I wanted
to leave them there long enough to see if they too
indeed burn holes into the ones that were yellow today.
I hope I can find them again. There's a lot of bushes
to sort through for 1 person.
