【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】新蒲崗高山榕樂園 handsome lofty figs at san po kong

走入新蒲崗,舊區與以往工業區混調出一種跟香港鬧市區不同的步調。 正當呼吸享受遊走一帶,驚喜發現樓宇街道間一個綠色休閒方塊,裡面掛起了一道道木質羅帳。 衍慶街遊樂場內的高山榕,讓我見識到此樹種的殖民霸氣,那種一樹可成林的能耐。 高山榕氣根和板根發達,這幾棵有幸活在舊區的公園內,有不少空間讓牠們伸展。 只是路過,沒有時間細細賞識每棵樹,匆匆拍下寬展的樹根力牆,也頗壯觀。 正如香港很多平日風光,周圍賞識的人不多,但這些美樹還是有知「蔭」人,午間時分,公園人不多,但樹底下每棵都有一位伯伯或叔叔坐下。 i never imagine i am writing about beautiful trees in san po kong. this is an old and industrial district. if i set a plan for tree appreciation, this will not be one place listed on the plan. it is out of luck. it was lunch hour i was...

希美利與叉尾太陽鳥 scarlet bush/hummingbird bush & fork-tailed sunbird

常見一些鳥攝人士以象牙花為指標,瞄準以花蜜為食的鳥種。也許因為象牙花的嬌紅,讓畫面奪目吧。 我愛好觀鳥,擁抱的是大自然分派給我的時地緣。 certain plants attract certain creature, that’s how nature law is. some lung-yau (photography enthusiasts) always go after ivory coral tree flowering season for sunbird. i enjoy bird-watching but i embrace random luck. this morning i have the luck catching a pair of fork-tailed sunbird tweeting and feeding on a hummingbird bush.  今日在市區一幽靜山坡,木林中希美利花開,遠處已經聽到吱吱鳥唱。於是放輕腳步停守樹下,聽到鳥鳴趨近,更不敢肆意動作。循聲索雀,先捕捉到鳥身的剪影,於是拿起攝影機,對準方向,然後將鏡頭拉遠。 雄性這鳥正在整頓毛妝,竟然停留在樹枝上好一陣子,讓我拍下他鬆毛鬆翼多樣姿態。...

大花老鴉咀 large flowered thunbergia / blue skyflower (thunbergia grandiflora)

自己是市區人,有點愧疚,最初認識此花是在兵頭花園 (動植物公園)。嬌美茂盛的花朵,見於園內栽種園圃的矮小植物,不覺此是藤蔓植物。 後知後覺地,今年第一次欣賞到野外花盛狀況,才真正感受此植物的特性。 此常綠藤本原生於南亞及中國。全年開花,但以夏秋最盛。 大埔滘郊野公園山谷間,藍紫色瀑布漫山傾瀉,美極。 總狀花序,懸垂性,大花呈唇狀;花冠藍紫色,喉部淺黃色。按《樹木谷》所指,「大花老鴉嘴」名稱前半描述其花,後半比擬其果;果熟轉黑、張口。葉厚對生,葉形多樣,心型至卵形。 this vine is easy and pretty. it blooms in the tropic all year round. it is native to south asia, including bengal and india; as well as to china. for us the flowering seasons come spring and autumn. two of its chinese common names start with “large flowered”. that...
