【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】華富邨華裕樓大葉榕 big-leaved fig in wah fu estate

對舊屋邨的大樹有莫名溫暖的好感,因為屋邨的樹木與千百人同呼同吸,而且看顧不止一代人的生活。感覺上,牠們高壯的身軀濃密的樹冠,聚滿同時散發充滿人性的靈氣。 這棵大葉榕站立在華富邨其中一個寬闊的庭園,位置在華裕樓旁。 高度幾乎與八層樓高看齊,好鄰友就是一起成長的。老舊屋邨,大樹扶持,就簡單而美麗地描畫了「安居樂業」四字。 稍說大葉榕,心目中的神奇樹木,因為她換裝神妙。這落葉/半落葉的喬木,初春時落葉與新葉的交替期數天內完成,而且初生嫩葉的嬌綠,絕對是至高無上的春天色彩。2012年曾寫過這篇《春之大葉榕》,當中的照片可以給予你少少的震撼。 can’t help adoring big old trees in older public housing estates. there are many of them but the quantity doesn’t dilute the presence and spirit they give out. tree planting and gardening in old housing estates is no-nonsense, practical and i believe is done with the sense of humanity. look at...

【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】水池巷的細葉榕 chinese banyan (ficus microcarpa) at tank lane

寫到第三篇的本城美樹,如果還不寫石牆樹,似乎有點為過。原因家在西區,而中西區擁有很多具歷史性的石牆樹。 然而,這棵美樹並非一般大家心目中的石牆樹:典型的場景是大幅高而老的麻石石牆,樹木掛著濃密綠蔭,氣根懸垂而下。 今天的主角,抓著的牆不高,表面鋪上石屎。細心留意,卻可發現細葉榕植根的地方是水泥後面的石牆。 這細葉榕精彩之處,是那樹根,如不小心放大了水龍頭,水柱哇啦哇啦不受控制噴瀉;剛剛呼應這條巷里的名字,水池巷。 細葉榕的根摧毀力可強,但寧願以欣賞角度去感受其力量,創造出奇幻般的自然雕塑。 水池巷位於上環較高位置,附近地標有紅磚的青年會。 it does not make sense not to feature a stonewall tree when talking about beautiful and representative trees in hong kong. but this is not a typical stonewall tree on first glance. to many hongkongers the impression is that the wall would be old and tall built with big...

悼皇后像廣場印度榕與銀珠 tree disaster 2017 – statue square

2017年8月23日及27日,香港一連受到兩個颱風侵襲。先有十號颱風天鴿,再有八號 帕卡,香港颱風史上屬強勁的風力,加上連連大雨,整個城市的樹木受到前所未有的摧殘。 自己嘗試以相機紀錄了不同地區的慘況,但兩星期過後,覺得損毀情況實在廣泛,很難作比較整體的樹災記述。是以選了自己感受最深刻的,來為那麼多的樹魂作點點的悼念。 two typhoons, of big magnitude, in one week cost great casualty to our tree population. devastation can be spotted almost every green corner in the city. first we had typhoon hato that went up to signal no. 10 on aug 23. four days later pakhar brought huge amount of rain under signal...

白楸新葉花季 new leaves and flower of turn-in-the-wind

炎炎夏日,看樹周圍都是深綠一片,突然遇到一片毛黃色,不自覺走近。 白楸真的是種繽紛的喬木。這個時候開始花季,色彩就來了。本身常綠,葉是青綠色,準備開花,葉叢中心拔起新嫩的葉,還有花蕾,皆嫩毛棕黃的色調,不顯眼奪目,但那種帶質的顏色一樣誘人。然後風一吹過,葉底那新白,像海浪的白花,色彩配合動感,自是目不暇給。 turn-in-the-wind flowering season spans from summer to autumn. it is the early stage. we can spot trees in the city started showing signs. in the middle of the green mature leaves, are some small and young leaves in grey-yellow with tomentum; floret as well. the evergreen tree does not produce sharp colours but...
