Out in the treescapes of far north Queensland, right now are the flowering mango's.
Here is how they perform their show:
Mangifera indica............King of the Fruits.
They are everywhere, all the more noticeable because of flowering. The drive along Ellis Beach on the way to Port Douglas puts on a real show at mango flowering time.
Part of the initiation into becoming a northerner, is having the experience of squelching mango between the toes from kicking the fruit in it's bounty.
(Not deliberately, of course. That would be cheating)
I will go and dig a few more flowering mangoes out of the picture file.
