I was wandering around the yard waiting for the dog to find the exact right spot to pee and this nest caught my eye. It is about 6 feet up in the mango tree. I thought I saw an egg when I peeked in the first time but when I came back out to take a picture, it was empty. Weird. And NO, I didn’t touch it! Lillie found the juice box straw wrapper and thought that was the coolest thing…

The tree has rebounded well since the late spring frost knocked about 10 feet off the top and killed all the baby mangoes. Boo! We probably would have had 40 or 50 this season. No mango pickles or mango ice cream for you! I picked up some golden mangoes from the Cabbage Patch and they are delicious! A little less “mango funk” to them – maybe a little more tart with a hint of pineapple? The flavor is really unique. We made blueberry mango smoothies – yum.
