春天花盛 spring blooms

連續兩年寫過春天的白花,今年春季同樣滿目花開,應接不暇,不得不再用串匯方式,速寫刻下美麗花季的植物。當中白花多,也包攬其他花色。

spring flowers are exciting. can’t help sharing this time every year. wrote about white blossoms in spring the last two years. this year i’m gonna add more colours.

 

山指甲鼎盛的綻放,今年特別璨白。或嫌色相太耀眼,花香又踴躍為賞花人引路。我還是會停下來欣賞欣賞她們,因為山指甲是本土植物。

chinese privet (ligustrum sinense) is booming particularly bright this spring. some say it has a perfume some say it has an odor. no matter what, I appreciate this local native small tree boom to its fullness.

 

鯽魚膽花序頭狀及繖房,開花有開揚氣度;但同樣是本土植物,相較山指甲,氣勢還是比較含蓄。花色白中帶淡紫,感覺雅麗。

maesa perlarius is an evergreen vine and a hong kong native. Like Chinese privet, it has happy crowdy white blossoms. but the former are shinny white and much denser, while the latter have hints of violet in the blooms and more breathing space between.

 

柚和橙是同目同科同屬的親姐妹,所以開的花相似,都像精緻的象牙飾品。不過柚的雌蕊蘋果青色,而橙則是奶黃。橙的花瓣比較短而瓷白。

pomelo and orange are brother and sister. they belong to the same botanic order, family and genus. that explains the resemblance of their flowers. both look like elegant ivory ornaments. pomelo however has green stigma and longer petals with shades of pink.

 

春花同樣是香港兒女。常綠灌木。花開如繁星夜。白、粉、黃,暖和如春。

the chinese common name of hong kong hawthorn is spring flower. when the season comes, star-shaped little blooms sprinkled spring prettiness every countryside and parks in hong kong.

 

色彩組先來象牙花。小型落葉喬木,喜生於水邊和濕地。花萼成杯狀,花形似紅色象牙。花開完新葉長。這花最吸引相思。

indian coral tree blossoms are commonly called ivory flowers in chinese because of their shape. these red blooms are magnet to little birds like japanese white-eye, thus add more fun and joy when appreciating the plant.

 

吒紫嫣紅的杜鵑將山映紅 azaleas is the signature of spring in hong kong.

接力為這城添上血色是木棉,英雄自有風采。after the azalea bloom peaks, cotton trees take the baton to colour the city red.

 

雲南黃素馨又叫野迎春,讓人精神一振。這雲南姑娘是常綠藤狀灌木。黃花開,就算春霧天也眼前一亮。

primrose jasmine is a scrambling evergreen shrub. it is a native of southern china. it has fragrant yellow semi-double flowers. they are so pleasant in looking that even in spring fog, one’s heart will be lightening up.
