Heavy clouds are in the sky, and this young mpingo seedling shows the effect of the long rains. It has tripled in size during this growing season since it was transplanted, and the new green trunk is loaded down with new leaves and not yet strong enough to hold upright the weight of the leaf growth. It will strengthen over the coming dry season and turn grey as the bark develops. 18 May 2008.
