耳果相思的耳果 the fruit of earleaf acacia/earpod wattle

耳果相思與香港種植繁多的樹種台灣相思是同科同屬的,所以他們某些特徵相近,如開黃色毛絨的花, 如他們的真葉只出現在幼苗時期,成樹茂密的是葉柄進化的「假葉」。 耳果相思在香港的郊區和市區常見,是常綠喬木。原籍澳洲、南亞。 此樹的「假葉」呈闊鐮刀形,有三、四主脈。穗狀花序,橙黃色細小花數枚簇生於葉腋或枝頂。 立即介紹本文的主角,耳果相思的莢果。何其有趣的造型,扭彎再扭彎,植物科學前輩認為像耳朵故命名。我則覺得像搖鼓,特別是果成熟木化後。這照片是本星期拍的,果實非常鮮嫩,帶著新生的粉綠色。 acacia is a very common planting species in hong kong. back in the 1970s formosa acacia was one of the top three species planting in our country parks as well as in the city. earleaf acacia shares the same family and genus with formosa acacia and it is also common...

香港 2016年12月 hong kong in dec 2016

十二月不同日子不同地點的天空。captures of the sky at different spots in hong kong on different days in december. 上個月香港的天空長久美麗,藍天的日子很多。活在清朗的藍色大氣下,情緒很難不高昂。 但美麗的藍空伴隨是暖和的氣候;十二月的白天感覺如夏日,絕不能不檢視那異常。 藍天帶來的興奮收藏的應該是苦澀的未來開始。人類對氣候和地球的殘害真象其實已經在顯露,大家不能只陶醉表象,大家不能只滿足於在自然尋趣,必須為自然行動和付出。 we have many blue sky days last month. the clear crisp blue atmosphere easily bumped up our mood and good senses. but an uneasy nerve kept ticking in my head. it was december and there are many...

香港墳場的美麗綠空間 the green treasures of hong kong cemetery

我是喜歡逛墳場的人,當然限於有美感的墳場而不是純功能性的那些。 跑馬地的香港墳場,更隔一陣子便會重遊。因為那裡幽靜、美麗,歷史和綠色的內容非常豐厚。 聖誕假期,陽光和煦,就禁不住登上電車,支赴跑馬地。 i love graveyard walk because they are always quiet and solemn. hong kong cemetery in particular is the one i frequent. it is easy to reach, it is beautiful physically. the great depth of history is hard to resist. and it is a treasure land of historic trees and greenery. it was...

心型植物代表:珊瑚藤 a vine with heart-shaped parts: pink coral vine (antigonon leptopus)

珊瑚藤開花很奪目,可謂無人不愛。粉紅的花色,總是一串花鈴般熱鬧。 珊瑚藤是多年生木質藤本植物,半落葉,花期長。 這植物特質多,葉和花質感像紙,而兩者都呈心形。互生的葉是卵形或卵狀三角形,而基部深心形。花更有趣,由五個似花瓣的苞片組成,呈三菱形。 今天聖誕,就借此植物,送上心意和祝福。 coral vine is really pretty when blossoming. the pink 3-d heart-shaped flowers are papery and pleasantly pink. they bloom for many months and never come alone, the flowers always look cheery and appealing. this mexico-native is perennial and having leaves in heart to arrow shape. it is a fast growing plant...
