MM 10-13a (first photo) is a nice respectable-looking flower. MM 10-13b (second photo) is a bit darker in the eye, and there may be a bit more veining in the tepals (hard to tell from the photo).

This isn't a spectacular cross, but I think it's an improvement over the seed parent. The flowers are a bit larger and whiter, and the eye is more brightly colored. I like the very flat tepals of this one, compared to the reflexed ones of many Moraea species.
