長沙灣荔枝角道是條木棉道 a tree cotton path along lai chi kok road (cheung sha wan)

最近經常走去深水埗長沙灣一帶,對長沙灣屠房(已停用)、蔬菜統營處周遭馬路兩旁的闊落尤其喜愛,特別知道這附近不久將來又會賣地發展面貌將大變遷後,更珍惜每次走在這路段的光景。 上星期走逛這區時,因為近日紅棉時節,對此樹種特別敏感,喜發現這裡路上很多木棉。 這裡是老區,所以不少木棉都非常壯大。城市中的大樹,正正是社區的年輪和時計。但願更多城市人對樹木也對其他與我們共享生景的物種珍重。 been exploring sham shui po and cheung sha wan recently. love the wide and spacious as well as calm along lai chi kok road. cheung sha wan abattoir that left vacant since 1999 is my favorite spot. it is a govt facility built in the 1960s but stop functioning in 1999. to...

二月天,木棉、洋紫荊都早了開花,山指甲的果似乎也早了結果。相片影像美麗暖人,但不禁暗歎氣候之糟亂。 it is february. all the plants feature here are common species in this city. the odd thing i have to point out is that the flowering and fruiting seasons seem all too early. evident of climate and seasonal mess-up is everywhere, even though the imagery are pretty. 洋紫荊 (hong kong orchid tree) bauhinia ×...
