THORNBIRD (Monty Byers, 1989) TB spaceager

The many faces of THORNBIRD.  The first pic shows a bloom with two purple 
horns and one small tan flounce (or is that a spoon - I never have known 
the difference). The second pic shows the same bloom from the side - 
purple horn on left, tan flounce/spoon on right.  The last pic shows a 
bloom with purple horns all around and a big purple color break on one of 
the standards.  Almost made it worth looking at!  ;-)

Having never attempted the mechanics of hybridization before, I chose 
THORNBIRD to experiment on.  I did a (very clumsy) reciprocal cross 
between THORNBIRD's bc bloom and two flowers on the gargantuan TRIPLE 
WHAMMY (ok, you can all quit laughing now).  Of my first three pollenated 
flowers, two are now growing what appear to be very healthy seedpods - 
one on TW and one on TH.  Yes, I'm pretty doggone proud of myself!
