zea mexicana blooms

yesterday i was out taking shameless selfies of my and my stand of tesointe while grumbling about the lateness of the season and "where are the flowers already?"...perhaps the plants were listening or, more likely, i was not looking high enough into the upper reaches of the now 10 ft.+ tall plants, however, on this 85 degree ( fahrenheit ) evening i have found a fully fledged flower and a nascent one...not normally a fan of warm weather i will be hoping for an extraordinarily warm autumn ( i may get my wish i was planting daffodil bulbs last december as i recall )...the race is truly on between seed ears and frost...viable seed is probably impossible..but seed ears and some morphology are not...geeked.
