    Default Paph My Valentine x Wizard of Oz

    this is my little wonky beauty... the flower is actually on a 75 degree angle (maybe hard to see on the photo) because I turned it the wrong way when I put it on an angle to make the dorsal 'pop' open more) but I really like it's color and shape.

    tim, the angle makes her look so demure for a "red lady". Really sexy.

    Oooh...I love her deep coloration - I'd bet in the absence of bright light she swallows it all!

    Nice Paph, Tim-O!

    Tmai, You are right. The slight tilt of the blossom gives it a slightly shy look.



    bench72, A charming romantic red.
