Mango Tree Blossoms

The mango blossoms in the tree are hardening into protrusions under whose weight the stalk  gently dips. A few embryonic mangoes have already fallen and spilled on the ground. If all the blossoms that drape the tree like a yellow gossamer become mangoes there will be thousands of them. With so many of the flowers swept by the breeze, with the few of the remaining spilling while still very young, only a few dozens will ripe to adulthood in a tree.
