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...

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...

烏墨 jambolan plum (syzygium cumini)

前兩天經過九龍公園,散步曬太陽賞樹,突然在樹籬迷宮側的樹坡看到一個樹牌 「烏墨」 馬上神思飄然,像聞到一陣墨香,又似感受到一個大俠佛然轉身一股風影。 烏墨是常綠喬木,原生於東南亞和南亞。 烏墨較日常的名字叫海南蒲桃,與蒲桃、蓮霧是近親。 當果期來時,烏紫色的果子跌滿一地。很多人會覺得一片狼藉,我卻很欣賞大樹為地面來個潑墨揮筆,不負「烏墨」這名字。 這次未逢果熟時節,細細觀察,看到花和初果。 兩年前記述九龍公園另一角落《海南蒲桃 jambu》,時為九月初,已經果實纍纍,還有果子墜地後的香美圖。加一註,果子雖然多汁,但不是漿果而是核果。 two days back i happened to pass by tsim sha tsui, so i spent extra minutes to check out the century-old chinese banyan along nathan road. couldn’t help worrying these nature treasures of our city are ailing and soon to leave us. sign. then i route...
