東平洲自然人文雜錄 tung ping chau may 7 2017

五月初去了一趟東平洲。一個島嶼,滿是寶藏,由最招牌的岩石地貌,到假日遊人如鯽與荒廢民居的對比,還有豐盛的海岸岩岸生境 ...... 簡單的筆記/圖片紀錄: tung ping chau, an island at the very north-east corner of hong kong. it is a treasure island, full of rock wonders and creatures. hope that the increasing number of visitors are not upsetting the nature there. here is a rough record of things i saw in a trip there early may....

酸葉膠藤的花 flowers of sour creeper (urceola rosea/ecdysanthera rosea)

幾年前寫過此木質攀藤,因為在濕地公園多番看到它可愛的果實。 猜不到原來自己日常經過的地區都有她的蹤跡。 酸葉膠藤是香港原生也普遍。 這陣子,在些山頭綠坡,看到一雲粉紅花霧,很大機會就是她。 酸葉膠藤開花熱熱鬧鬧,小小的粉紅花冠成圓錐花序。花期就在此時即初夏。 lately i have been drawn by the pink mist of flowers along road sides and slopes of victoria road. it was a pleasant surprise to find out that i actually knew this plant before, but the imagery is so different that i did not connect. i saw this woody climber...

金杯藤 cup of gold (solandra maxima)

這植物來自中南美,人和自然的性味原來真的緊扣,金杯藤同樣發放美洲人的熱情奔放。 木質藤本,藤莖粗大纏繞盤伸,具蒼勁毛筆字的勁道。葉深綠亮澤,長橢圓形,互生。 最不得了的是那金杯大花。這相片可證明,一天經過堅道,明明人在對面馬路,遙遙就見到堅道花園黃燦燦的金杯! (堅道花園  caine road park) 金杯藤花最初是淡黃色,盛放後變金黃。芬芳。有雄蕊五枚;花冠五淺裂,每裂片中間有紫褐色紋理。 金杯藤近年開始普及種植公園,但植物有毒性。 endemic to central america, this vigorous woody vine is also known as hawaiian lily. cup of gold bores thick stemmed liana, quite big and leathery green leaves and large chalice-shaped yellow flowers. the flowers start out yellow and turn deeper golden as they age. they are fragrant,...

紫春花 - 港油麻藤 a violet spring flower – hong kong mucuna (mucuna championii)

三月中一個週日,在鹿頸附近遊走,偶遇港油麻藤,非常美的紫春花。 港油麻藤與俗稱禾雀花的白花油麻藤是近親,同屬黧豆屬,而前者因首次在香港發現,所以以港命名,又稱香港黧豆。 此攀藤植物花冠蝶形,紫色花朵成總狀花序。卵形三小葉形成羽狀複葉序。果披銹色硬毛,腹背有翅。比起白花禾雀花,紫色的似乎較少見。這次難得機會在野外碰到,對鮮花驚艷,旁邊已枯老的烏紫色調和變化了的質感,也像老了的酒,饒有味道。 it was a great surprise spotting this beautiful native species during a hike around luk keng in mid march. the dark violet is so gracious. people are more familiar with mucuna birdwoodiana in the same family and species that bore yellowish white boom around this time as well. hongkongers and chinese refer...
