土沉香 incense tree [速寫 sketch]

土沉香是中國特有的樹木,與香港也很有淵源。而這樹今天屬於易危級別。

最近碰上這樹兩次,所以來個速寫。

incense tree is endemic to china,and has a twinding history with hong kong. today it is a vulnerable species.

i encounter this tree twice lately. just like to make a note.

四月二旬,在西貢蕉坑的標本林,看到數棵高聳的大土沉香。樹幹淺灰,樹皮有一環一環。

three weeks ago, at an arboretum in  sai kung, met with a few big incense trees. happy for them, as they are living in a secured place.the tree trunk and bark is easy to recognized, grey and with rings.

昨天,在濕地公園,那裡的土沉香在開花。黃綠色的花,形態趣緻,排成頂生或腋生的傘形花序。

yesterday at the wetland park, the incense tree is blossoming. the blossoms are interesting looking. greenish-yellow in colour and in a terminal or axillary umbel.
