藍楹紅影 the blue and red of early summer

每年都會追逐兩樹的花季,今年在五月遇到藍花楹和影樹(鳳凰木) 花季交疊。她們的花期相近,暫且不跳進氣候紊亂的懷疑。

every year i chase the flower seasons of jacaranda and flame of the forest. this year seems to be the first the two are overlapping. for now i’d prefer not to jump into blaming climate change as the two flowering seasons are in fact quite close to each other.

香港大學荷花池附近的藍花楹開花不盛,只是寥落的藍花。有點失意。

the jacaranda not far away from the lily pond of hku are not blooming too much. only a few flower bunches here and there. is it due to too much rain and warm weather, i wonder.

轉頭準備走出大學範圍,卻遇到東閘頂的鳳凰木蓄勢待發。一失一得,大自然總是帶來驚奇的。

as i tried to leave the hku campus, there comes the surprise. i haven’t prepared to greet the flowers of the flame of the forest so soon. but indeed this old tree around the east gate of hku has started waving many flower buds.
