What I wrote isn't exactly accurate, I guess.  There are those AT 
LAST seedlings and those would be from an OGB- X OGB.  Also I have 
four new seedlings from LIGHTS OF ARABIA X DESERT EMBROIDERY.  The 
problem is that my mind won't class AT LAST or DESERT EMBROIDERY as 
OGB- in the way it will most of the type.  They look more like OGB 
types than those I more easily mentally slot as OGB- types.  But 
germination hasn't been good from those either, but a bit better 
than others.  Every year my germination rates get worse on the AB 
crosses.  With only 13 seeds from LOA, it is easily my best 
percentage of germination this year.  So, of course, I will keep 
plodding away at attempting to get plants from the type cross.  I 
can't say I'm discouraged exactly, but not really encouraged either.
