夏之草 2017 – 小飛揚/千根草 summer grass 2017 – thyme-leaved spurge (euphorbia thymifolia)

這陣子經常大雨,繼而放晴灼熱,造就空曠少人的路上山邊,小草野花欣欣向榮。希望盡量多寫幾個品種。 先由他開始。 很喜歡這草本擺出的方陣,扁平地佈置出圖形和指向。而且不甘於小草就是綠綠棕啡,莖呈粉紅色。 細看,小橢圓形樹葉互生,而葉腋已經爆發花朵。 這是香港原生的草本,亦見於熱帶地方,並常見於亞洲藥療。 this summer is so wet and intercut with tremendous heat and sunshine. such weather nourish herbs and wildflowers blooming away on road and hill sides. aiming to feature a number of them in following days. our first star is thyme-leaved spurge. the reason to feature this herb first is loving...
