【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】摩頓台南洋楹 moluccan albizia (falcataria moluccana) at moreton playground

銅鑼灣高士威道維園「兩岸」,有很多年長高壯的美麗大樹,希望日後陸續紀錄。 這次先寫在中央圖書館後側的這棵,因為拍照當天,適逢摩頓台足球場剛舉行盂蘭勝會,所以大樹附近的畫面跟平常風光不一樣,可以看到盂蘭的戲棚,戲班的人還在。特意紀錄。 銅鑼灣這場地的盂蘭,由潮州公和堂舉辦。他們的盂蘭,2017年已經辦到120屆了。 回說南洋楹,樹型美麗,而且樹屬高大喬木,在外地最高可達40米。從他的名字可知道來自南洋、馬六甲一帶。 觀乎外型,容易聯想到我們很喜歡的鳳凰木,也有點像最近寫過的雨樹。三者均同在豆科下,鳳凰木是一般喬木,高度不可能挑戰南洋楹。最容易辨認三木,自然是開花時,鳳凰木開紅花,雨樹是粉紅的,南洋楹則是白近黃,而後兩者都是含羞草亞科的,所以花形呈毛球狀。 南洋楹的花期在春末初夏。 拍照當天周圍寧靜,不過週末時分,這裡有不少外傭聚集。看過她們興高采烈而且甚有隊形地在大樹前面的排球場比賽。南洋楹高昂祥和地站駐行人路上,下面人聲鼎沸,場面熱烈,好一幅悠然的週末風景。 there are plenty handsome and mature trees along the sides of causeway road just around this area. will slowly cover them one by one here. but first this moluccan albizia. it is on the pedestrian road toward the back of the central library next to the moreton temporary...

【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】黃竹坑雨樹 rain tree (albizia saman) on wong chuk hang road

決定建立【本城美樹】此欄目,因為城內很多樹木都很美且需要保護,不少在頃刻間突然被消失了或自己走了。尤其經過上個月(2017年8月)兩個巨大颱風,造成大量樹木傷亡,覺得不容遲疑了。本部落平常寫樹木,筆觸集中植物特性,而此欄目則較著眼樹的人文關係,譬如地區和城市的聯繫。目的是一本自家的美樹名冊。 after two big typhoon last month, august 2017, found no more excuse to delay building this column on this blog. as a tree lover in this city, it is really painful to see many beautiful trees, many of them with historic and community value, suddenly disappear; many times due to human interference, sometimes of...

悼皇后像廣場印度榕與銀珠 tree disaster 2017 – statue square

2017年8月23日及27日,香港一連受到兩個颱風侵襲。先有十號颱風天鴿,再有八號 帕卡,香港颱風史上屬強勁的風力,加上連連大雨,整個城市的樹木受到前所未有的摧殘。 自己嘗試以相機紀錄了不同地區的慘況,但兩星期過後,覺得損毀情況實在廣泛,很難作比較整體的樹災記述。是以選了自己感受最深刻的,來為那麼多的樹魂作點點的悼念。 two typhoons, of big magnitude, in one week cost great casualty to our tree population. devastation can be spotted almost every green corner in the city. first we had typhoon hato that went up to signal no. 10 on aug 23. four days later pakhar brought huge amount of rain under signal...

雙翼豆快影 quick snap: yellow poinciana (peltophorum pterocarpum)

這陣子雙翼豆開花了。大雨然大太陽的天氣,應該是花開得如此燦爛的原因吧。 之前已經專文寫過,所以不再作詳細資料描述。 只想點出,雙翼豆開花的肢體型態很有剛勁的美感。每個花簇把有如一個巴掌,枝幹分明,豔花的花苞從枝底有序向上伸延。花本身美得野性,而植物本身卻展示條理的理性。 it is now flowering season of yellow poinciana. only at this time i realize there are quick many of them in this city. at other time, this plant is like an easy guy, hiding among the green. if you want to know more about this tree information wise. check my previous post....
