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...

樹頭菜花祭 2018 spider tree flower celebration

原來這部落第一次寫樹頭菜,是 2012 年的春天。多次春天的花季,貼文也有所記錄。這些年來,很多時候會經過九龍那繁忙路段,卻通常是在巴士上,匆匆瞥看。感覺今年的花美,於是專程去了一趟太子道西賞花,結果來了一場九龍城的「樹頭菜花祭」。 this blog started on spider tree flower season in spring back in 2012. almost every post i mentioned about the best scenery along prince edward road west. yet never did i truly walk along the stretch of road planted with spider tree and make a first person appreciation of the season, until...

快影:藍花楹花季開始了 snaps: the blue flower season arrived (jacaranda mimosifolia)

縱然年年花開,每次遇上藍花楹的花季,心動又心悸。 因為花美,又因為那花的色調如此勾魂哀怨。 even though it is a common gardening tree in hong kong, even though i wrote about it many times on this blog. the blossoms are spellbinding. the blue is almost haunting. if melancholy is a colour, this is it. 藍花楹 jacaranda (jacaranda mimosifolia) – plantae kingdom 植物界 | clade 演化支: angiosperms 被子植物 | clade...
