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...

【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】西貢墟美髯細葉榕 “big beard” chinese banyan (ficus microcarpa) in sai kung town centre

非西貢居民進去西貢墟,一定非常忙碌,趕著吃海鮮找美食,又或趕著轉車轉船親親大自然。 但我入西貢很多時都會多預時間,可以沿海旁吹吹海風看看主人們遛狗,又會鑽入西貢墟的樓房小巷認識社區,當然少不了走入感覺很時光轉移的一片綠蔭方地,當中大樹包圍一座泥黃色平房,不遠有個門樓標示萬宜灣鄉立學校。而較近食肆小巴站沙咀遊樂場的另一邊,就有必定過來打聲招呼,感覺生活最暢快的「美髯親王」細葉榕。 這棵細葉榕擁有最開心的大氣空間。實在看得太多細葉榕的「鬍鬚」被人修剪被人打結或者「鬢辮」,「留鬚」的權利慘遭剝削。這幸福細葉榕則可盡情伸展其美髯,猶如手工掛麵一梳一梳呼吸空氣讓陽光撫弄。 香港的標誌細葉榕主要盤桓石牆,能坐擁一大片泥土及空氣的細葉榕,在土地問題如此嚴峻的城市,不單教樹也教人羨慕。但願我們可一直羨慕這棵細葉榕下去。 for non sai-kung residents, i believe every time when you make the effort of going there you probably are busy and in a hurry to complete your plan. either you are meeting families or friends for a gastronomic gathering, or you are en-routing to the country park, marine park or hiking...
