【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】新蒲崗高山榕樂園 handsome lofty figs at san po kong

走入新蒲崗,舊區與以往工業區混調出一種跟香港鬧市區不同的步調。 正當呼吸享受遊走一帶,驚喜發現樓宇街道間一個綠色休閒方塊,裡面掛起了一道道木質羅帳。 衍慶街遊樂場內的高山榕,讓我見識到此樹種的殖民霸氣,那種一樹可成林的能耐。 高山榕氣根和板根發達,這幾棵有幸活在舊區的公園內,有不少空間讓牠們伸展。 只是路過,沒有時間細細賞識每棵樹,匆匆拍下寬展的樹根力牆,也頗壯觀。 正如香港很多平日風光,周圍賞識的人不多,但這些美樹還是有知「蔭」人,午間時分,公園人不多,但樹底下每棵都有一位伯伯或叔叔坐下。 i never imagine i am writing about beautiful trees in san po kong. this is an old and industrial district. if i set a plan for tree appreciation, this will not be one place listed on the plan. it is out of luck. it was lunch hour i was...

新美利的節果決明 the pink & white shower at the new murray

活化計劃下的豪華酒店今年初開幕了,今年賞美利的節果決明,背境光鮮奢麗了。 期待孤零的名木從此得到悉心的看顧。活化發展前,樹生於美利大廈的停車場,停車場四周有其他十多棵樹木,發展令下,只剩名上冊的樹「有得留低」。 the murray building has gone. it is now “the murray”. this luxurious hotel established under a heritage revitalized project opened early this year. the only white & pink shower on our old & valuable tree register, bless you, has started its first blooming season in the ‘new’ environment. things so far looks good....

樟樹多看 appreciating camphor (cinnamomum camphora)

近日百花盛開,連樟樹都繁花似錦。興起寫寫樟樹的念頭。 覺得樟樹和榕樹是我們這一輩很貼心很有感受的自然之根,因為兩樹都是華南和香港的原生樹,這個城市周圍都可接觸到:榕樹樹牆甚至一些舊樓的牆邊天台在香港,而家裡父母輩和祖父母輩總有個樟木櫳。也因如此「生活」,很多時我們都少了讚賞牠們的存在和價值。這部落開筆多年,就還沒有專題寫過樟樹 (多不該!) camphor is one of the most common and close-to-heart trees in hong kong. common in the sense that it is a native tree, it is in abundance here; even non-nature lovers in particular the less young ones, most likely camphor has a place in their hearts or mind, because the older generations...

2018年之始,祝綠常在 wish green with us all in 2018 and beyond

2017年最後一天,在市區散步。走在堅尼地道,路的一邊是山坡,另一邊道路,兩旁有不絕的多年大樹守立。 活在這城市久了,就知道,即使歷史悠久,老樹縱橫,一切都可在瞬息消失。所以每次無論走在鄉間、郊野、舊區,都盡量呼吸感受一事一物一草一鳥。 多希望我所憂的皆是庸人自擾。 期望繼續與大家愛惜及至守護我們所有。 on the last day of 2017, i took a walk in the city but on the quiet and green side. this is kennedy road, where many decades old trees and historic constructions are around. every time everywhere i go in this city, i am always vigilant that could be the last...
