大埔林村行筆記 2016.5.22. lam tsuen bio-/ tree journal

五月下旬,在林村走了一圈。看了不少香港鄉村的生態景致,尤其壯觀的是不少半百、過百、數百年的大樹。 made a walk around lam tsuen, an old village cluster deep inside tai po, one sunday towards the end of may. the rural nature is really refreshing as i usually go around the urban areas. the many old trees of decades and hundred years old are particularly thrilling and spiritual. ~ 許願樹(細葉榕) - 放馬莆村 ...

鳳凰處處 summer flame

早一星期寫過鳳凰木(和藍花楹),很快忍不住再記一筆。幾張街上隨影,在香港不同地方。我們居住這城市有百般不是,但看到如此繁花紅豔,不由產生幸福感。 wrote about flame of the forest (and jacaranda) one week ago, and can’t help posting about this species again, cause the city is lit up by the red-hot blossoms. some quick snaps from different places the last few days. 數碼港山坡  a majestic looking one on a slope at cyberport 堅尼地城  kennedy town 香港大學(遠景般含道上有另一棵)  hku...

藍楹紅影 the blue and red of early summer

每年都會追逐兩樹的花季,今年在五月遇到藍花楹和影樹(鳳凰木) 花季交疊。她們的花期相近,暫且不跳進氣候紊亂的懷疑。 every year i chase the flower seasons of jacaranda and flame of the forest. this year seems to be the first the two are overlapping. for now i’d prefer not to jump into blaming climate change as the two flowering seasons are in fact quite close to each other. 香港大學荷花池附近的藍花楹開花不盛,只是寥落的藍花。有點失意。 the jacaranda not...

鳳凰木的根和花瓣 flame of the forest is more than the flame

每年都寫影樹/鳳凰木,因為每次花季不禁驚艷。真的,經歷那麼多的花季,那嫣紅依然震撼。 不過,花最盛的日子經來了且去,加上過去幾天的大雨(2015年首個黑雨今早來過),那片紅色風暴消退了。 以下是早陣子拍下的照片,是採取另外角度來欣賞這美麗的喬木。 成熟的影樹,都會發展很有建築美的板根。板根一般出現在熱帶樹木,作用是加緊穩固樹木。影樹的樹枝喜歡橫伸,樹冠美麗而寬闊,樹的上身份量重,自然需要盤穩的下身。 很喜歡鳳凰木的花,不單限於熱鬧精彩的花團錦繡,就是片片花瓣也是惹人憐愛。看,每片花瓣就像為地面撒下一個舊式打字機打出的完美逗號。每一朵鳳凰花,由五片花瓣和花萼組成,花瓣當中四瓣伸展,第五瓣直立稍大且有黃白的斑點。 since this blog started, i wrote about flame of the forest every year and in different seasons. still there are more about it. you might wonder why i still haven’t covered this species this year and it is almost off-season now. i am sorry i didn’t have the time to...
