德國的闊葉椴和香港的破布葉 large-leaved lime in germany & microcos in hong kong

五月底與家人出發德國旅行十天,上天眷顧,全程幾乎好天氣,藍天艷陽,巧遇大地進入初夏,清淨大氣下,周圍綠耀花香,美不勝收。 一路旅遊,名勝古蹟間的公路行人道、園林或景點的花園,放眼美麗高大有閱歷的樹木,很多是香港少見的寒帶樹種,樂意開眼界將不同國度經度緯度的綠林放入認知;另外,有一種抓住我的眼球和心房:有著美麗魁梧的樹形,茂密喜綠的樹葉中間著盈盈奶油黃色的花朵和粉綠的苞片。由於到處可見,旅遊到回程返港,一直懸念追尋樹名樹種資料。 嘗試詢問當地導遊叔叔,他以德文說樹名『鈴』(音:電話鈴單車鈴的象聲發音)『度』,並用德腔英文說花可用茶。  i went with my parents to germany for a 10-day tour starting end of may. we were blessed with almost non-stop blue sky and sunshine. summer just arrived meanwhile. many of the places we visited trees and grass were so green and flowers were blossoming. what a beautiful journey. on top of...

給般含道的情書與輓歌 悼鄧志昂樓門坊旁榕樹 an ode to the good old green bonham road. granny chinese banyan ouside tang chi ngong building, sorry & rest in peace

上次寫樹的悼文是去年9月十號颱風後。回溯,最疼的訃聞,是接連2015年般含道 7月大雨塌樹及8月的閃殺百年大樹。 悲慘的是,傷痛竟然可以一次比一次劇烈。自己愛樹,悲劇卻二不離三地發生於生活的社區,般含道光景台更是自己幼稚園和小學的所在。所以,請原諒,這篇文章要等待事發後數天才能執筆開始,心實在如刀割。 this blog sadly from time to time will post tree obituary, to mourn the death of some beautiful, and mostly old and valuable trees in this city. the last one dated back to post typhoon hato time, in sept 2017. the most hurtful piece, not only to me but many residents in...

絲木綿的果和絲 the fruit of floss silk tree (ceiba speciosa)

第四次絲木棉的專文,這次是此植物的全新角度,賞樹看到不同階段,是幸福的。 之前幾次都在說花,搶眼花俏。而絲木綿果實的觀相,讓我意外地憐愛。 另外,也加一筆有關此落葉樹的植物分類更新。 在城市內熟悉的幾棵標誌性絲木棉,均高大昂藏,一切觀察盡是遠距離的。有幸,居住不遠有個地方,幾年前新種植一些絲木綿,給與我較方便的觀察。 wrote about floss silk tree before, but this is a brand new angle on the plant. not about the flashy and attractive flowers any more, we are looking at its fruit this time. personally found the fruit and its content adorable almost like some cute animation characters. at the end of...

記立夏 2018 summer just began

今天 2018.5.5.,農曆是立夏。 在家附近一草木坡道,看著這些芒在陽光底下榮榮閃耀。 覺得畫面很有夏意,同時回應空氣中稍稍的涼意。 according to the lunar calendar, summer begins today. the chinese silvergrass these days on the shrub and grassy slope not far from my place are thriving. they are dancing and singing under the sunny breeze, showcasing how a young “summer” looks and feels. 芒/中國芒 chinese silvergrass (miscanthus sinensis) - kingdom: plantae...
