夏之草 2017 – 小飛揚/千根草 summer grass 2017 – thyme-leaved spurge (euphorbia thymifolia)

這陣子經常大雨,繼而放晴灼熱,造就空曠少人的路上山邊,小草野花欣欣向榮。希望盡量多寫幾個品種。 先由他開始。 很喜歡這草本擺出的方陣,扁平地佈置出圖形和指向。而且不甘於小草就是綠綠棕啡,莖呈粉紅色。 細看,小橢圓形樹葉互生,而葉腋已經爆發花朵。 這是香港原生的草本,亦見於熱帶地方,並常見於亞洲藥療。 this summer is so wet and intercut with tremendous heat and sunshine. such weather nourish herbs and wildflowers blooming away on road and hill sides. aiming to feature a number of them in following days. our first star is thyme-leaved spurge. the reason to feature this herb first is loving...

白楸的花 turn-in-the-wind blooms

這陣子走到山邊、郊外,都會看到白楸正值花季。花沒有開出奪目的色彩,但每棵樹都沉淡地綻放熱鬧滿樹的花。 白楸是本地原生小型喬木,花雌雄異株。白黃色細小花朵密集組成(總狀)花序生於枝頂(頂生),映照不太壯大的樹身,感覺濃郁喧鬧。 快到你身邊的綠地方,應該不難看到白楸,欣賞一下這種低調但強烈的植物季候景致。 同時,讓你參考年前10月寫過白楸的果 - 《白楸的果 turn-in-the-wind and there are fruit》,準備接下來這物種的果季。 turn-in-the-wind is common in and native to hong kong. it is its flowering season now. you won’t miss it even though there is no bright colour. small yellowish white flowers build dense towers at tips of branches, or flowers in terminal, branched racemes in...

血桐 elephant’s ear (macaranga tanarius)

日常經過的路段,近幾個星期看著周邊的血桐看花開得燦爛,興起寫寫他念頭。 回到檯頭,翻查看看,原來還沒有正式寫過這種香港處處可見的常綠喬木。 血桐是本土樹,在廣東、台灣原生。 this evergreen tree is so commonly seen in hong kong that i almost forgot to feature it here. but for the past few weeks it has been reminding me by its explosive blooming and fruiting extravaganza, i feel sorry that i did not introduce it here earlier. 血桐在香港隨處可見,就算你完全不認識此植物,實在有很多特色幫助你記得他的。 先是名字。「血」的由來:當枝條折斷,樹液出現,經氧化後變紅,狀似流血。而我最初對這植物產生好感,是因為可愛的英文俗名「elephant's ear 象耳朵」,馬上會聯想到陳年電影卡通《小飛象》的可愛模樣。 macaranga...
