九龍公園的樹天際 the green skyline of kowloon park

近日事忙,未能坐下寫文章。但日常生活中,未停欣賞周圍。尤其精神繃緊時,更會提醒自己將視野和心神找出路。城市中,很方便地就往公園鑽。 九龍公園歷史長,裡面的樹木充滿歲月的美態和內蘊。可惜沒有太多香港人會說愛這些優美的城市綠洲,反而外傭姐姐懂得享用這些優秀的都市綠色園地。 been really busy the past month. couldn’t spare enough time to do some long blog. but i haven’t stopped appreciating our nature around. kowloon park. love that it is right in the middle of a busy district, while the old and tall and precious trees almost providing a precious green doom for those...

希美利與叉尾太陽鳥 scarlet bush/hummingbird bush & fork-tailed sunbird

常見一些鳥攝人士以象牙花為指標,瞄準以花蜜為食的鳥種。也許因為象牙花的嬌紅,讓畫面奪目吧。 我愛好觀鳥,擁抱的是大自然分派給我的時地緣。 certain plants attract certain creature, that’s how nature law is. some lung-yau (photography enthusiasts) always go after ivory coral tree flowering season for sunbird. i enjoy bird-watching but i embrace random luck. this morning i have the luck catching a pair of fork-tailed sunbird tweeting and feeding on a hummingbird bush.  今日在市區一幽靜山坡,木林中希美利花開,遠處已經聽到吱吱鳥唱。於是放輕腳步停守樹下,聽到鳥鳴趨近,更不敢肆意動作。循聲索雀,先捕捉到鳥身的剪影,於是拿起攝影機,對準方向,然後將鏡頭拉遠。 雄性這鳥正在整頓毛妝,竟然停留在樹枝上好一陣子,讓我拍下他鬆毛鬆翼多樣姿態。...

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...

rapsberry! 樂是啤梨! ~正名茅莓 rubus parvifolius

近一個星期,在家不遠一道斜坡草叢發現 rapsberry 樂是啤梨,忍不住每天去看,每天拍照。 一直以為 raspberry 是很外國的果子,經翻查資料,才知道這品種「茅莓」,是東亞及大洋洲原生的。 for the past few days, i can’t help walking up the hill not too far from home and check out those adorable ruby-like fruit ripening away along a grassy shrubby slope.  坊間一般稱這為紅桑子,我卻喜歡以士多啤梨的翻譯邏輯稱之為「樂是啤梨」。 據中國的網站資料,此攀爬灌木別名有紅梅消、茅莓懸鉤子、蛇泡簕等。一提,蛇泡簕在香港的植物詞彙指另一同屬植物 rubus reflexus。 百度上資料指植物果期為7、8月。不肯定是南北地域差別,還是氣候影響,這些果子在4月底便開始出現了。 i thought raspberry is a very western fruit. the fact is that there...
