新美利的節果決明 the pink & white shower at the new murray

活化計劃下的豪華酒店今年初開幕了,今年賞美利的節果決明,背境光鮮奢麗了。 期待孤零的名木從此得到悉心的看顧。活化發展前,樹生於美利大廈的停車場,停車場四周有其他十多棵樹木,發展令下,只剩名上冊的樹「有得留低」。 the murray building has gone. it is now “the murray”. this luxurious hotel established under a heritage revitalized project opened early this year. the only white & pink shower on our old & valuable tree register, bless you, has started its first blooming season in the ‘new’ environment. things so far looks good....

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...

樟樹多看 appreciating camphor (cinnamomum camphora)

近日百花盛開,連樟樹都繁花似錦。興起寫寫樟樹的念頭。 覺得樟樹和榕樹是我們這一輩很貼心很有感受的自然之根,因為兩樹都是華南和香港的原生樹,這個城市周圍都可接觸到:榕樹樹牆甚至一些舊樓的牆邊天台在香港,而家裡父母輩和祖父母輩總有個樟木櫳。也因如此「生活」,很多時我們都少了讚賞牠們的存在和價值。這部落開筆多年,就還沒有專題寫過樟樹 (多不該!) camphor is one of the most common and close-to-heart trees in hong kong. common in the sense that it is a native tree, it is in abundance here; even non-nature lovers in particular the less young ones, most likely camphor has a place in their hearts or mind, because the older generations...
