    Default My pretty little Phal

    I got this phal about 3 months ago from a roadside florist vendor. The only thing is, is i dont have a name. so after some help at the WOS, we decided i would just name it a random name "Winebarrel" was my pic.

    What i love about this, is the colour, its fairly dark and the lip is awesome in colour! also the crisp white outline on each petal and sepal.
