    Default This Purple Velvet Paph has Twins

    This paph is so dark that I could not get a good picture of it. It is P. Alma Gavaert x Tuxedo Junction x Purple Velvet. Sorry about the shadows, I'm a lousy photographer.

    Reminds me of the colour of the Cab-Sav I'm currently drinking while orchid-surfing! (I'm such a lush! LOL!)
