酸葉膠藤的花 flowers of sour creeper (urceola rosea/ecdysanthera rosea)

幾年前寫過此木質攀藤,因為在濕地公園多番看到它可愛的果實。 猜不到原來自己日常經過的地區都有她的蹤跡。 酸葉膠藤是香港原生也普遍。 這陣子,在些山頭綠坡,看到一雲粉紅花霧,很大機會就是她。 酸葉膠藤開花熱熱鬧鬧,小小的粉紅花冠成圓錐花序。花期就在此時即初夏。 lately i have been drawn by the pink mist of flowers along road sides and slopes of victoria road. it was a pleasant surprise to find out that i actually knew this plant before, but the imagery is so different that i did not connect. i saw this woody climber...

一家大小市區麻雀篇 tree sparrow families

深春初夏,雀鳥進入繁殖期。我家住鬧市,有幸大廈背靠綠樹坡。清晨在窗外綠影鳥鳴伴醒,最是幸福。有朋友、也有新聞報導有市民有感鳥聲嘈耳煩擾要投訴,實在不能苟同。 這個季節,如到郊外,是觀賞夏候鳥的時節。但在城市內,鳥兒也在我們附近; 特別在一些老樓房屋簷下,我們的鳥朋友都在開枝散葉。 deep spring to early summer birds are busy breeding and raising families. not only we can witness such sweetness in the wild, such life stories are happening around us in the city as well. our very close buddies, eurasian tree sparrows love building nests in small spaces hidden here and there in...

苦楝處處 china berry trees bloom time

「三月苦戀,四月相思」,這是學植物賞樹者很上心頭也常引的一句語。說的是樹種的花季,苦楝開花後相思隨之,卻有種哀怨浪漫的聯想。 這星期天色陰暗,少了陽光,苦楝的花色中的紫透不出光彩,濃密的花叢看似蒼灰,似乎更呼應上述的情懷。 近日穿梭長沙灣,發現這個老舊社區中公園以至行道樹有很多壯大的苦楝。 每遇一棵,禁不住站在樹下,細意端視每顆花帶出的紫霞。然後走離不遠,再呼吸空氣中飄蕩的花香;苦楝開花可以濃得不可以,花薰太近或感有點嗆,走遠一點,有了距離就美。 chinaberry is common in this city and now is the high time of its blossoms. the flowers are very pretty but the colour is less fleshy and the fact that they are tiny and always come in quantity may blur the prettiness when looking the tree by far. yet you cannot...
