路邊牡荊/黃荊 chinese chaste tree along roadsides

之前遇到的牡荊是一棵樹,高大,賞花要仰望。 最近在山邊路旁看到盈盈嫩綠葉叢當中,冒起淺紫美美伸展花串,覺得眼熟。拍照,回來查究,原來是同一植物。 看似草本的黃荊,成熟後是灌木或小喬木。植物的花玲瓏巧美,近看那密被細毛還像流蘇的舞衣。 this plant is blossoming away along roadside and hillside under hot bright summer sun. the bluish violet flower panicles look like small dancing fairies in tutu. it looks like a herbivore. this is actually a shrub or small tree i wrote here before. the low-lying posture deceives me while allowing me to...

藍楹紅影 the blue and red of early summer

每年都會追逐兩樹的花季,今年在五月遇到藍花楹和影樹(鳳凰木) 花季交疊。她們的花期相近,暫且不跳進氣候紊亂的懷疑。 every year i chase the flower seasons of jacaranda and flame of the forest. this year seems to be the first the two are overlapping. for now i’d prefer not to jump into blaming climate change as the two flowering seasons are in fact quite close to each other. 香港大學荷花池附近的藍花楹開花不盛,只是寥落的藍花。有點失意。 the jacaranda not...

四月~紫色 the colour is lavender this april (2016)

四月過了一半,大部分日子小雨大雨雲霧不散,天灰沉沉,雲層厚甸甸。不得不為心情另覓出口。 找到了紫色。 stepping into the third week of april, many days were rainy foggy grey. feeling damp and heavy. so i look into the nature around to seek colours. i found lavender. 苦楝 - 白色的花瓣,紫色的花蕊,小小的,輕輕的。遠看開了花的苦楝樹,如團團輕紗紫霧籠罩,近賞,花秀色巧,令人的視線不能移開。站在樹底久了,又可感受幽幽花香。這季節最低調而醉人的美景。 chinaberry - this blog has been written about this tree every blossoming season. still, i am holding my breath every...

黑草 buchnera cruciata

因為自己矮小,容易注意到地面草本,也特別對小不顯眼的這類植物有共鳴。 黑草的名字很老實,指的是植物乾後黑色的狀況。但此草本開花時,卻立體曼妙。 請細意欣賞,那型態彷如形體浮華的當代建築摩天大樓。 參考植物資料,再對比,更覺這「花樓」的有趣美妙:黑草是一年生直立草本。莖纖細,圓柱形,上端略呈四方形。紫花秋末開,兩性,穗状花序,花冠高脚碟狀,密集頂生成四棱柱形。 這植物生於華南,也見於華中及東南亞。 flowers and tree always catch people's attention, while herbaceous are relatively being ignored. i however love appreciating and studying many of these little plants, because they really have distinctive features and characters. think about trees, many of them resemble some others, but if you look with just some attention of...
