仲春芒果花季 mid spring, mago blooms

雖然沒有鮮豔的花色,但每年芒果樹開花,那種爆發力讓我無法抗拒。

芒果屬於漆樹科,特色包括花小,缺少花瓣,成頂生或腋生圓錐花序。

芒果原籍南亞,而在香港無論市區和村落,他們都深入我們的周圍如鄰里街坊。

 (幾棵芒果是香港公園的老成員。these few mango trees steps away from the east entrance of hong kong park are old members of the park.)

mango blooms are always explosive, so even they are of earthy tone not really fleshy, the power is there.

therefore this blog year after year can’t help noting the arrival of the flower season.

mango belongs to the sumac or cashew family thus share the characteristics of the family:flowers are small and sometime with no petals. they grow at the end of a branch or stem.

mango is native to south asia but it is very common in hong kong both in the city and villages. it almost feel like one of our native trees.

 (香港公園高處下望,一列芒果樹花滿開。looking down from the green house, mango trees along the lake look explosive)
