Mangos everywhere around are bursting into flower. Great sign that the midway point of winter has passed. Soon be hot days and mango madness.

It's a bonanza for nectar feeding insects, especially the butterflies.

Yes, it's in Australia, near Darwin. The trees all over the place are just covered in flowers.

Nice photos! Would love to see updates once fruiting starts.

Can't help but think of the classic surf movie, "Endless Summer"... where the guys follow summer around the world. It occurs that you could also follow mango season around the world :)

Although mangos produce thousands of pinhead fruits, most fall off as the tree would have no hope trying to support them all to maturity.

Agree - totally refreshing to see spring in the middle
of 110 degrees (today in the desert!)

We're still middle of winter here so the temps are only getting up to around 34C. But every day is a day closer to spring and the rainy season. I'll get some more photos in the next day or so, but then I'm away for about 4 to 5 weeks. The fruits should be a lot bigger by then.
