I went to the markets today. They make me happy.

Amongst the pyramids of fruit, I saw a row of mangos. MANGOS!!!

I took a darling mango home. It had no scent. I sliced it open. Its flesh was bright yellow. I bit into this mango and it was sour. Sour as an off lemon.

But I didn't care. It made me stupidly happy.

When Mangos begin to appear in the shops, it means only one thing - summer is just around the corner!!

Fruit lady said they are expecting peaches and nectarines next month. Life is good.

    I'm not being very good at being wordless am i?

    I love your ambition girlfriend! but - bit too early yet for the mangos

    slice it up and place it in the oven in a dish with a bit of sugar sprinkled over and walnuts - it should stew and taste nice after about 20 mins

    take care


  2. So much goodness - mangoes & summer just around the corner. I'm loving this post! xo

    Thank you, Sannah,
    for your lovely comment
    on my blog. I tried
    to reply by e-mail, but
    yours isn't registered
    on Blogger. My daughter
    devoured each and every
    comment, and especially
    loved yours : )
    Have a wonderful day!

  4. OH mangoes, we used to have a mango tree in our garden in Darwin, well a few actually. Tip for when they are about to finish the season - chop off all the flesh & freeze it, a magical fruit you can freeze!! Fantastic as a dessert or in smoothies, yummo, love Posie

  5. Yes, I agree with posiepatchwork, freezing mangoes is the best! I haven't been game to try the mangoes that are out, and after reading your post, I think I will wait a little bit longer.

    Stone fruit in summer makes me happy too.
