Mango Madness

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.
