Thanks everyone! I was lucky in that the back lighting allowed the colour to be almost perfect.
Forgot to say that it is indeed scented. Each flower gave off a very small scent so on previous years very few people noticed. But this year, with 11 flowers, it packed a punch. Intoxicating fragrance.
Oh, and Christian, I actually prefer that they don't last as long as phals. I would just get too bored awith it after 4 weeks. My mum's white phal lasts about 5 months and drives me crazy with the dust that it collects, as well as the rot spots if I try to clean it off. So, I'm happy with this one.
