unexpected seedling

PEACHY FACE X KOKO KNOLL.  When I made the daubs, I didn't expect anything 
to take since PF is an IB.  When a couple of puny pods forms, I expected 
them to be balloon pods.  When I saw the seeds, I nearly tossed them they 
looked so pathetic.  I planted them but didn't expect any germination.  When 
this single seedling germinated, it looked what you might expect if you got 
a seed so poor - very frail.  To my surprise it turned into a sturdy plant. 
I still didn't expect it to live, but it did.  Now it's blooming.  I was 
predisposed to like the bloom, but didn't expect to like it as well as I do. 
I also didn't expect white standards.  I don't expect it to have any 
fertility.  Maybe it will fool me.  It's been something fun to grow.
