榕子二 chinese banyan fruits 2

這陣子經過有細葉榕的地方,都遇到一地榕子的盛况。小時候會覺得髒。現在倒覺得浪漫,腳底可踏著自然,空氣中飄縈微微榕腥,而且不怕生的鳥兒都來趕食。

lately when passing by places with chinese banyan (ficus microcarpa), it’s always ground-full of lovely rosy peas. just this past sunday, i experienced a show of wonder delivered by the chinese banyan standing in front of the french missionary house at battery path. some rosy pearls fell down every other few seconds. it was a quiet afternoon, i could hear them tipping and tapping the road and those smashed on the ground or being stepped by pedestrian emit a slight hint of grassy fragrance. and then sparrows came and pecked.

原來已經是第二次寫榕子。大概反映自己實在很愛這粉紅圓渾的小粒子。
