羊蹄甲藤 climbing bauhinia

連續兩天遇到這植物,星期六在荔枝角公園,星期天在海防博物館。園藝品種的羊蹄甲藤,精緻在葉片小小齊整,看著一牆綠悠悠的心心葉,碰巧花期,微型的羊蹄甲花相襯,賞心悅目。遇著野生的,自然感受不一樣。回來搜集資料,發現她們是香港原生品種,就更愛。

seeing their “cosmetic” relatives in gardens and parks more than a number of timed. numerous small and heart-shaped leaves sprawling neatly and busily on walls, always found them cute. it was only the past weekend that i realized they are of the genus of bauhinia and there are species in vine. more rewarding is that i bumped into their flowering period. topping that, learning that the climbing bauhinia is native to hong kong.
