Thanks Paul.  Great winter activity!

In some ways, it's kind of surprising that others don't attempt to duplicate crosses that have produced award winners. But the reality is that we all make plans for some types of crosses, then there are those that 'call' to us during bloom season. Can't help but wonder if a lot of these fall in that category - seem like a good combination to more than one person while plants are blooming. I'm sure I didn't plan ahead to cross ROM EVE onto NIGHT GAME. NG was a very reliable healthy plant here (tho I eventually lost it thru neglect) but wasn't particularly fertile; RE had better width and was ridiculously pollen fertile, so seemed like a good combo to me at the time, when I was trying to get a good, reliable source of pollen fertile width in any color combination.
