冬之木棉 tree cotton in winter

越來越發覺,冬天觀樹很有趣味。春天看到繽紛姣美的花朵盛會,確實讓人心花怒放。但多留心,樹木在冬季瑤麗多姿,另一番體味。

more and more i am convinced that winter is an interesting season for tree-appreciation. people can’t help drawn by the visual and smelling sensations of flowers blooming in springs and summers. but just by paying a little more attention, winters offer us different perspective of trees and plants.

木棉樹,大家都馬上想到春夏之際,風骨直挺樹幹灑灑打開血紅英雄花的美景。卻原來,在冬天,木棉是何等枝葉茂盛,同時正準備落葉。木棉這落葉大喬木,生長週期是先花後葉。

intrigue by the bountiful look of the tree in the colder season.

tree cotton has an interesting life-cycle. it is a deciduous tree. the leaves it shatter in winter is actually grown last summer. it flowers in spring before new leaves develop.

so in winter, the tree is getting ready to shed the leaves. the big oval-shaped leaves start to turn yellow.

這時候,愛站於樹下仰望這位英雄。細心欣賞木棉的葉、幹和美麗的枝丫。

葉片蠻大片的,長橢圓至卵狀。有長長葉柄。表面有光澤,背面綠色較淡。互生,掌狀複葉,小葉約六片。

樹幹、枝條有圓錐形的短刺,以保護樹皮樹幹;但它們會隨年月增長而脫落。

what i enjoy doing is to stand under a tree cotton, and look up. it’s a sensation. the straight elevated main trunk and strong branches spreading out, that is handsome. the leaves are palmate with about 6 leaflets radiating from a central point. the leaves are quite big and have long petiole. the shape and the radiation deliver so much aesthetic pleasure.
