Mannguy (flower)
Mannguy (flower)


We see many flowers on trees and we get food from some of these. When we are in the bush and we see a honey bee eating from flowers, then we know it is making honey. Some trees, when we see them flowering, tell us that kangaroos are fattening up, such as when the yellow kapok tree flowers. We see many trees flowering, and lots of birds and insects eat their nectar. When women see the water lilies in flower they say “ok, the stalk and roots are ready for eating”.
