Dragon Eye

The area surrounding our neighborhood is full of fruit trees. Mango, papaya, lychee and longan, which is translated as dragon eye. Last year, dragon eyes popped up everywhere. The trees were laden with them and it was hard to complete a walk without picking a pocketful of the juicy treats. As it turns out, these fruits are fickle. Some years the trees bear lots of fruit and other years are essentially barren. This year is one of the latter. The trees that provided us with snacks hold only a few lone eyeballs...

Getting to the fruit -

... and the seed remains to hopefully bring a new tree into the world
