Hi Christy,

I couple generous people gave me a few old Byers catalogs this year.  If you
would write me off list, we can discuss.

  Subject: [iris] TB:HYB: M. Byers' notes, anybody?

  Hey y'all,

  I'm still bored.  Poking around more pedigrees I found something that
  and intrigued me.  Might be old news to y'all.  But does anyone have M.
  Byers notes to confirm my hypothesis?

  Looks like M. Byers had a favorite cross, (Sky Hooks x Condotierre).  This
  cross produced:

  Sdlg # B-37-1  which is included in  MAUVELOUS
  Sdlg # B-37-2  included in both HANDS UP  and STARSHIP
  Sdlg # B-37-5  which is LOCH NESS and is included in MAGIC KINGDOM and
  Sdlg # B-37-8 which is WATERSPOUT
  Sdlg # B-37-10 included in CONJURATION
  Sdlg # B-37-2RE-SA included in BLOWING BUBBLES
  Sdlg # ???? included in WELDON GIBBS
  Sdlg # ???? included in PASSION FLOWER

  and these two parents also appear as outcrosses in IMAGINE THAT, LET'S

  So, someone tell me, are all these seedlings from the same pod?! All the
  intro years seem to be all jumbled up, and with only the last part of the
  seedling number being the variable....

  I know CONJURATION must be a parent of many current and future intros, what
  about the rest?

  Now you see what kind of trouble I can get into when I have too much time
  my hands.
