WPC: Seasons: Mangoes in the Making

This week’s challenge asks us to post image(s) that is (are) evocative of the season we are experiencing currently.

We don’t really have seasons where we live. It’s mostly 30C + all year round. But there are subtle changes that keep happening. We’re heading into summer- the mango trees and the Neem trees start flowering.

Today I’ve got a few photographs of mango blooms and tiny bud mangoes in the making. A couple of months from now the markets will be flooded with golden mangoes!

    I had no idea mango flowers and buds were so beautiful! (I am now joining in with this photo challenge after discovering it on your blog, Sukanya!)

      That’s amazing! I’m so happy I inspired you to participate. These flowers are something we take for granted. I was myself stunned at how beautiful they were when I saw them up close!

    Thanks for sharing the beauty in our backyard !

      Thank you for visiting! It’s important to realise sometimes that we do not have to go half way across the world to find beauty and wonders. We can start right here in the backyard.

  8. Never knew how beautiful the blossoms were – thanks for sharing these lovely shots! Years ago my husband worked in a mango orchard on an Israeli kibbutz . . . till he eventually came down with the dreaded allergy to the mango pollen ;-(. We learned that it apparently affects great numbers of people.

      I hadn’t noticed the beauty of these blossoms until I actually went out with my camera and tried photographing them. There’s so much beauty around us but we must take the time to notice it.
