Hi Char,
The red on the stalks of Invisible are pieces of yarn.  :-)  (*g*)
In my primitive attempts of hybridizing, I use pieces of yarn to
identify what the pollen parent was.  In the case of different pollen
parent use, I use a different color of yarn. 
All crosses are logged in my notebook and mention of the color of
yarn is also recorded. 
I'm doing okay with keeping the cross identified >> so far only 1 per year
do I ever discover "unmarked."
But I suppose now is the time to ask where can I find the best type of
method/labels to use to mark a cross when I hybridize in 2006.  ??
P.S.  The iris virus has recently reactivated itself.  I'm VERY anxious for spring! :-) :-)
