Proto-Blossom . . . Can We Keep It? July 30 2014

As a professional griever (heyyy, that's not true), I tried to be sad that the mimosa tree blossoms were done for the year.

But that all changed when I found this amazing little (1/4 inch) proto-blossom. It had BEEN in a mimosa tree's queue to bloom but--by the time I found it--was on its way out.

Can we keep it?

P.S. Want one? Looky here.
