HYB: beginners and Selection Ratios

Thanks all for the kind words of encouragement - this list has sure been
a wonderful place to learn how to do all this interesting stuff.

But I am not at all  in a class with the other beginning hybridizers and
their winning irises mentioned!! Just because these kind visiting
hybridizers/judges were encouraging me to introduce these irises,
doesn't mean they would win any kind of award, even at the lowest level
Only that they are good growers here (so they get extra 'points' for
doing well in the Rot Queen's garden) and the flowers aren't duds (good
placement, good bud count, no ghastly faults in the flowers/stalks).

As Bill Shear would say, let's not get too carried away <g>.
Introductions and award winners are two very different things, aren't
they?  Or is there some sense that any iris worthy of introduction
<should> be worthy of an award?
