This is Mango blossom taken in India. Some fruits are setting if you look and will be ready in May/June. I am on holiday there just now. Do love looking at different plants - especially those that bear fruit I love. Please don’t look at the title of Pear Conference this was my fault using slightly clumsy way of trying to name this plant here on Garden tags. Honestly it is probably me but do other people have a problem using the on line form and attaching to the encyclopaedia?

I'm in Hampshire Joyce though not as far up as Selborne. Went there many years ago, I remember climbing a steep hill for a view of the village. @joycemb

@lilybee I’m in Petersfield so not far from Selbourne. Very pretty place and Gilbert White’s has had a big face lift and is enlarged to take in more land where I found the trees. Much bigger cafe now with excellent food.

Sounds like it's worth revisiting at some point, thanks Joyce 😊 @joycemb

The top branches are now pointing upwards and quite tall should I trim the whole lot once the leaves have fallen.
