苦楝處處 china berry trees bloom time

「三月苦戀,四月相思」,這是學植物賞樹者很上心頭也常引的一句語。說的是樹種的花季,苦楝開花後相思隨之,卻有種哀怨浪漫的聯想。 這星期天色陰暗,少了陽光,苦楝的花色中的紫透不出光彩,濃密的花叢看似蒼灰,似乎更呼應上述的情懷。 近日穿梭長沙灣,發現這個老舊社區中公園以至行道樹有很多壯大的苦楝。 每遇一棵,禁不住站在樹下,細意端視每顆花帶出的紫霞。然後走離不遠,再呼吸空氣中飄蕩的花香;苦楝開花可以濃得不可以,花薰太近或感有點嗆,走遠一點,有了距離就美。 chinaberry is common in this city and now is the high time of its blossoms. the flowers are very pretty but the colour is less fleshy and the fact that they are tiny and always come in quantity may blur the prettiness when looking the tree by far. yet you cannot...

仲春芒果花季 mid spring, mago blooms

雖然沒有鮮豔的花色,但每年芒果樹開花,那種爆發力讓我無法抗拒。 芒果屬於漆樹科,特色包括花小,缺少花瓣,成頂生或腋生圓錐花序。 芒果原籍南亞,而在香港無論市區和村落,他們都深入我們的周圍如鄰里街坊。  (幾棵芒果是香港公園的老成員。these few mango trees steps away from the east entrance of hong kong park are old members of the park.) mango blooms are always explosive, so even they are of earthy tone not really fleshy, the power is there. therefore this blog year after year can’t help noting the arrival of the flower...

複羽葉欒樹黃金花 golden rain tree

寫了幾次複羽葉欒樹,卻是第一遇到他的花季。 每天都有學新的機會。原來複羽葉欒樹的花很美。 近看,很小但標致,嬌黃花瓣,纖長花絲,花底抹了腮紅。 遠望,花一開,氣勢,樹冠怒放頂生圓錐花塔。 那美,更會散播,朵朵小毽跌下,讓周圍矮叢地上鋪上黃色地毯。 查究資料,此植物原生中國。難怪西方人都愛加上 chinese 在俗名上。資料也說花是有香氣的,但這陣子看到的樹都很高大,而且都在市內,未有感覺到那香氣。 從前寫此樹,都在秋季,完全因拜倒那濃密的粉紅燈籠陣(果子)。這次有幸遇到花季,最好是看到一些花轉果的狀況。大自然就是巧奪天工,參不透那嬌花如何卜碌成如吹氣的果包包。 荔枝角公園 lai chi kok park 九龍寨城公園 kowloon walled city park third time this blog wrote about this tree but a different english common name each time. this time golden raing tree is used to match the blooming season of the species. it is the first time...

四月~紫色 the colour is lavender this april (2016)

四月過了一半,大部分日子小雨大雨雲霧不散,天灰沉沉,雲層厚甸甸。不得不為心情另覓出口。 找到了紫色。 stepping into the third week of april, many days were rainy foggy grey. feeling damp and heavy. so i look into the nature around to seek colours. i found lavender. 苦楝 - 白色的花瓣,紫色的花蕊,小小的,輕輕的。遠看開了花的苦楝樹,如團團輕紗紫霧籠罩,近賞,花秀色巧,令人的視線不能移開。站在樹底久了,又可感受幽幽花香。這季節最低調而醉人的美景。 chinaberry - this blog has been written about this tree every blossoming season. still, i am holding my breath every...
