Donald -- I know the feeling as I have produced far worse. 
Most memorable was a TB x AB cross that opened with soft blue standards, soft green falls, and delicate dotting.  By the second day, it had faded to white and had the substance of a flimsy tissue.  My witty neighbor dubbed it "The Wet Kleenex".
We are not alone.  When I was digging Gene Hunt's seedlings, I found one labeled "Monster".  Of course I felt compelled to rescue it along with his selected seedlings.  When it bloomed, I understood how it got its name.
