柏架山行記錄 2017 a walk at mt parker, journal

一月中這星期天,天陰微雨,決定起行走進郊外。原因是近年香港人都愛鑽進郊外,好天氣的週末,山中的人多比美購物區,所以有點刻意避開人潮。天氣不佳但未至於差的日子,應該是寧靜郊外行的好時機。 但仍然是不折扣的城市人,選擇還是很城市的路線。 countryside has become the new hot spot for hongkongers in recent years. people rush to country parks and rural areas over weekends and public holidays. it is more so when weather is good. i started avoiding crowd on blue sky days. last sunday, the sky was grey. i told myself it could be...

耳果相思的耳果 the fruit of earleaf acacia/earpod wattle

耳果相思與香港種植繁多的樹種台灣相思是同科同屬的,所以他們某些特徵相近,如開黃色毛絨的花, 如他們的真葉只出現在幼苗時期,成樹茂密的是葉柄進化的「假葉」。 耳果相思在香港的郊區和市區常見,是常綠喬木。原籍澳洲、南亞。 此樹的「假葉」呈闊鐮刀形,有三、四主脈。穗狀花序,橙黃色細小花數枚簇生於葉腋或枝頂。 立即介紹本文的主角,耳果相思的莢果。何其有趣的造型,扭彎再扭彎,植物科學前輩認為像耳朵故命名。我則覺得像搖鼓,特別是果成熟木化後。這照片是本星期拍的,果實非常鮮嫩,帶著新生的粉綠色。 acacia is a very common planting species in hong kong. back in the 1970s formosa acacia was one of the top three species planting in our country parks as well as in the city. earleaf acacia shares the same family and genus with formosa acacia and it is also common...

香港 2016年12月 hong kong in dec 2016

十二月不同日子不同地點的天空。captures of the sky at different spots in hong kong on different days in december. 上個月香港的天空長久美麗,藍天的日子很多。活在清朗的藍色大氣下,情緒很難不高昂。 但美麗的藍空伴隨是暖和的氣候;十二月的白天感覺如夏日,絕不能不檢視那異常。 藍天帶來的興奮收藏的應該是苦澀的未來開始。人類對氣候和地球的殘害真象其實已經在顯露,大家不能只陶醉表象,大家不能只滿足於在自然尋趣,必須為自然行動和付出。 we have many blue sky days last month. the clear crisp blue atmosphere easily bumped up our mood and good senses. but an uneasy nerve kept ticking in my head. it was december and there are many...

香港墳場的美麗綠空間 the green treasures of hong kong cemetery

我是喜歡逛墳場的人,當然限於有美感的墳場而不是純功能性的那些。 跑馬地的香港墳場,更隔一陣子便會重遊。因為那裡幽靜、美麗,歷史和綠色的內容非常豐厚。 聖誕假期,陽光和煦,就禁不住登上電車,支赴跑馬地。 i love graveyard walk because they are always quiet and solemn. hong kong cemetery in particular is the one i frequent. it is easy to reach, it is beautiful physically. the great depth of history is hard to resist. and it is a treasure land of historic trees and greenery. it was...
