<< mmortality and Corn Harvest , was wondering if you had crossed the two
 of them together , this cross is on my list for next year .

I did make that cross.  It produced a pale yellow rebloomer and one near the 
color of Edith W.--a little paler in the standards.  Not of the most modern 
form, both produced prolific rebloom when happy.  

I could not bear to part with all the seedlings so I brought samples of 
around 50 with me.  Several were kept from the 94 & 95 crosses.  (My last 
years to hybridize--before this year.)  For instance, 9501-1 (and 9203-2) are 
from Bridge In Time (Glistening Icicle x Immortality) X (Feedback x Titan's 
Glory).  A strong rebloomer came from this.  Unfortunately, after heavy bloom 
for 2 springs and 1 fall bloom season it bloomed out.  Others from this cross 
are good but no rebloom.  

Some favorites were left in the fields.  A bitone red from Lady Friend X Earl 
of Essex was my most heartfelt loss.  Dug the wrong one.  Others were taken 
from my yard in pots as they awaited the move. (I never thought about people 
taking them . . . most of my stock of Radiant Summer disappeared.)

It was fun and there are several I wish I had with me BUT I made three 
interesting crosses this spring so there is more FUN ahead.  Hummm?? Wonder 
were I can find just a little more space?  May try raising seedlings in pots!
