Katherine – Bloom Town

At the moment whilst walking the streets of Katherine you’ll notice a pungent odour in the air. It’s stinking hot so a contributing factor would be my body odour. Also the bats are in plague proportions so bat sh!t (guano if you’re sophisticated) would also add to the bouquet. But a significant factor is the flowers. The trees up here are hitting a big time bloom, gearing up for a huge reproductive rampage when the wet season arrives. I wasn’t very busy today so I went for a cruise around town and took some photos.

Apart from the flowers, we also get mangos growing on the side of the road up here. So much free mangos in gargantuan quantities, anyone who loves mangos would be jealous. They’re not ready yet, but when they are it’ll be mango for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
