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....
