Very, very nice!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others. ~~ Sharon Brown

Thanks Everyone! I love this floribunda. Some years the bloom colour is amazing. I think our cool night temps and Epsom Salts contribute to the strong colour.

Here's the full photo, taken Sept 24th (late season bloom)
