The mahogany flowers are everywhere in my backyard.  They have fallen in their thousands I think.  A few days back, in the back yard, was a carpet of the small, pale-green, star-shaped flowers and the scent so overpowering, more so at dusk.  Now they have all faded.  They blend perfectly into the ground looking almost like very tiny pebbles and they crunch under my foot.  A few still drift down.  But the scent is gone. 
I tried to take a picture of the carpet, but it just didn't turn out, because, unless you knew what my backyard was normally, you wouldn't be able to make out the carpet.
