芒果 mango

芒果是香港人很愛的水果。甜品、蛋糕一有芒果特別受歡迎。芒果樹在香港也是常見的。但大家對這樹的注意沒有很多。大抵是她的花沒有很奪目的色彩。

mango is a popular fruit in hong kong. mango trees are also commonly seen in hong kong. the trees however do not receive the level of attention other common city trees in hong kong are having. hong kongers love and praise the flame of forest, tree cotton, chinese banyan, camphor … the list go on.

我對芒果樹卻很有好感,因為樹幹高樹蔭美,開花時茸黃滿冠,有種濃郁親厚的美意。到果期,大甸甸的果撲在行人道上,青色的皮、黃色的肉,好有暴力美。

今年的芒果樹不知道是否花開得特別昌盛,城市中,視線內,很容易接收到暖糜棕黃的景象。hk park mango
i want to do some justice to mango tree. i love mango tree, because of its many qualities. the tree can grow, it looks majestic with its height and rich and full crown.even though the colour of the flower is not as sharp as some other plant. when a tree blossom, the crown turns to a fluffy brownish-yellow big ball when look from far. it is so adorable. when the fruit season comes, i enjoy the “violence” it gives to our street life. the fruits splash and paint pollack on the pavement with their green skins and yellow flesh.

將鏡頭拉近,細看芒果的花和葉,姿態色彩動人。珊瑚枝般的圓錐花序,桃紅枝幹,百計的棕黃小花生於枝頂。而芒果屬漆樹科,所以葉片都有漆葉的特色,披針形,油亮深綠。聚生枝頂,形態曼妙。mango flowers

a close-up gives you another prospective of the details. the inflorescene ressembles coral; with pinkish red stalk and hundreds of brownish yellow tiny flowers arranged in terminal panicles.
