Hi Paul,

I'm not that familiar with the oldies, but I have done an ancestry chart for 
CHUBBY CHEEKS because we have also used it in hybridizing.  Unfortunately, 
some of the early hybridizers didn't keep track of their crosses.  I did 
notice Mesopotamica in the chart a number of times and a wide variety of 
pumilas.  Both DAISY and SOFT AIR have a lot of blues in their backgrounds 
and SOFT AIR's great grandfather is one of our favorite ancestors - BLUEBERRY 
MUFFINS.  With every color from black to white involved, the yellow edge 
could come from anywhere.

I agree with you that serious plotting, counting and note taking are less fun 
than wondering what this pollen would do to that iris and waiting with bated 
breath for the seedlings to bloom.

Hope the wind doesn't cause you problems.

Dorothy Willott
