銀樺與紅花銀樺 silky oak and red silky oak

這陣子兩種銀樺均在爆發。實在覺得她們的花朵和果實色彩和型態很吸引。 這兩個近親原籍澳洲。銀樺原生昆士蘭及新南威爾斯等地區,而紅花銀樺原產地就是昆士蘭,大概因此又稱昆士蘭銀樺。 兩者都是引入品種,銀樺該比較長時間了,所以較多見,也會發現接近野生型態的。銀樺與紅花銀樺也有大小的差別,後者屬大型灌木,前者則是高大的喬木。 have spotted the two silky oaks booming lately. the silky oak and red silky oak are both australian natives. perhaps the latter specifically originated from queensland, it also has a chinese common name queensland silky oak. we see silky oak more in hong kong, so i am making the assumption that it...

落羽杉的色彩 bald cypress splendour

感受其美色,有不得的衝動。 有趣地發現,去年幾乎同一時間我寫過此樹。消化一下,落羽杉的生理時鐘依然有序。慶幸。 2013年年頭,經過香港公園好幾次。拍下小塘開端的幾棵落羽杉的色彩蛻變。近一次並深深呼吸到杉樹揮發的清香,有幾秒,覺得自己被帶領到西方的森林去。 the past dozen of days, i passed by hong kong park a few times. and i feel the urge to share about the splendour of these bald cypresses. interestingly, looking back to earlier post, i wrote about this handsome tree almost the same time last year. giving more thoughts, grateful to realize that...

慈菇 threeleaf arrowhead

從前認識慈菇,就只有芽菇 - 我們食用的果,其實是其球莖。黃白色圓滾滾,頂抽出肥大的芽。口味如馬蹄加薯仔再多一點耐人尋味的澀。 threeleaf arrowhead is a common plant in mid and southern china. Chinese in these regions, I dare said, are more familiar with the “fruit” than the plant itself. The edible part is actually the tuber. Its taste and texture is unique, a crossover of water-chestnut and potato, starch and crunchy with an astringent... Continue Reading →
