Thank you Diane.

This morning I cross pollenated this nearly-finished Moraea gigandra  
from a corm Mike Mace grew:

with a newly-opened M. gigandra bloom from a Telos Rare Bulbs corm:

There are two Telos blooms opening today. I crossed the deeper blue  
one of the two.
I particularly wanted to cross those because so far they are the most  
blue I have seen.

Also, it turns out a Q-tip does not work as well as I had hoped. But I  
did not want to store a watercolor brush in the freezer.
