Those unplanned crosses can result in some big surprises. One of my nicest seedlings came from just
two pretty blossoms opening at the same time, and I didn’t have anything
else to do.Most of my HYB plans
burned up in the Arizona heat this spring.Half my seeds are from plicatas.I have no goals involving plicatas, but
with parents like Broadband, Lovely Dawn, Epicenter, Fancy Woman and a red
seedling out of New Leaf X Ring Around Rosie, I may
have some interesting flowers.

Because of pest infestation this year, I used what
was available and let me tell you, it sure wasn't much.
SPARTAN X CONJURATION STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN x SPARTAN
other crosses I pulled off were: CANAVERAL x DOCTOR NO THIN BLUE LINE x ZEBRA BLUSH CLARANCE x FANCY WOMAN FANCY WOMAN x THIN BLUE LINE CELEBRATION SONG x UNICORN UNICORN X (SKY HOOKS x THORNBIRD) STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN x QUEEN OF ANGELS
My approach was basically "beggars can't be
choosers" so I just set out to have fun with what I had to work with.
