	With pink in the background on both sides, I think you can get a recessive
pink, but I wouldn't venture a guess on how dark it would be.

     Linda, I thought you had grown OVATION, PINK PUSSYCAT, 
and STANDING OVATION already.  PP was a little taller than its 
sister O, but none of the trio exists in my garden today.  They have 
been gathered for the Master's bouquet.
