白楸新葉花季 new leaves and flower of turn-in-the-wind

炎炎夏日,看樹周圍都是深綠一片,突然遇到一片毛黃色,不自覺走近。 白楸真的是種繽紛的喬木。這個時候開始花季,色彩就來了。本身常綠,葉是青綠色,準備開花,葉叢中心拔起新嫩的葉,還有花蕾,皆嫩毛棕黃的色調,不顯眼奪目,但那種帶質的顏色一樣誘人。然後風一吹過,葉底那新白,像海浪的白花,色彩配合動感,自是目不暇給。 turn-in-the-wind flowering season spans from summer to autumn. it is the early stage. we can spot trees in the city started showing signs. in the middle of the green mature leaves, are some small and young leaves in grey-yellow with tomentum; floret as well. the evergreen tree does not produce sharp colours but...

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...
