複羽葉欒樹黃金花 golden rain tree

寫了幾次複羽葉欒樹,卻是第一遇到他的花季。 每天都有學新的機會。原來複羽葉欒樹的花很美。 近看,很小但標致,嬌黃花瓣,纖長花絲,花底抹了腮紅。 遠望,花一開,氣勢,樹冠怒放頂生圓錐花塔。 那美,更會散播,朵朵小毽跌下,讓周圍矮叢地上鋪上黃色地毯。 查究資料,此植物原生中國。難怪西方人都愛加上 chinese 在俗名上。資料也說花是有香氣的,但這陣子看到的樹都很高大,而且都在市內,未有感覺到那香氣。 從前寫此樹,都在秋季,完全因拜倒那濃密的粉紅燈籠陣(果子)。這次有幸遇到花季,最好是看到一些花轉果的狀況。大自然就是巧奪天工,參不透那嬌花如何卜碌成如吹氣的果包包。 荔枝角公園 lai chi kok park 九龍寨城公園 kowloon walled city park third time this blog wrote about this tree but a different english common name each time. this time golden raing tree is used to match the blooming season of the species. it is the first time...
