    Default supermarket Phal Carmen Pink

    Have been quite down lately and decided need cheering up, normally don't pay much attention to supermarket Phals because they are usually plain white ones with lots of shrivel buds but today was different must have been a new shipment there were colours and patterns I don't usually see. So to lift my spirits up again bought this Phal home finally had a tag on it " Carmen Pink " it was a toss up between this and another lime-green Phal not all the Phals there had ID tags WTH???
    It did cost a bit but didn't care too much at the time. I counted ther are 20 blooms to come. Enjoy

    Very nice, personally, i wouldve gone lime, but this is nice

    Most phals you buy here in NZ never have tags on them, they are all generic colours, and the names have probably been patented and copyrighted by the company directors.
