給般含道的情書與輓歌 悼鄧志昂樓門坊旁榕樹 an ode to the good old green bonham road. granny chinese banyan ouside tang chi ngong building, sorry & rest in peace

上次寫樹的悼文是去年9月十號颱風後。回溯,最疼的訃聞,是接連2015年般含道 7月大雨塌樹及8月的閃殺百年大樹。 悲慘的是,傷痛竟然可以一次比一次劇烈。自己愛樹,悲劇卻二不離三地發生於生活的社區,般含道光景台更是自己幼稚園和小學的所在。所以,請原諒,這篇文章要等待事發後數天才能執筆開始,心實在如刀割。 this blog sadly from time to time will post tree obituary, to mourn the death of some beautiful, and mostly old and valuable trees in this city. the last one dated back to post typhoon hato time, in sept 2017. the most hurtful piece, not only to me but many residents in...

絲木綿的果和絲 the fruit of floss silk tree (ceiba speciosa)

第四次絲木棉的專文,這次是此植物的全新角度,賞樹看到不同階段,是幸福的。 之前幾次都在說花,搶眼花俏。而絲木綿果實的觀相,讓我意外地憐愛。 另外,也加一筆有關此落葉樹的植物分類更新。 在城市內熟悉的幾棵標誌性絲木棉,均高大昂藏,一切觀察盡是遠距離的。有幸,居住不遠有個地方,幾年前新種植一些絲木綿,給與我較方便的觀察。 wrote about floss silk tree before, but this is a brand new angle on the plant. not about the flashy and attractive flowers any more, we are looking at its fruit this time. personally found the fruit and its content adorable almost like some cute animation characters. at the end of...

記立夏 2018 summer just began

今天 2018.5.5.,農曆是立夏。 在家附近一草木坡道,看著這些芒在陽光底下榮榮閃耀。 覺得畫面很有夏意,同時回應空氣中稍稍的涼意。 according to the lunar calendar, summer begins today. the chinese silvergrass these days on the shrub and grassy slope not far from my place are thriving. they are dancing and singing under the sunny breeze, showcasing how a young “summer” looks and feels. 芒/中國芒 chinese silvergrass (miscanthus sinensis) - kingdom: plantae...

rapsberry! 樂是啤梨! ~正名茅莓 rubus parvifolius

近一個星期,在家不遠一道斜坡草叢發現 rapsberry 樂是啤梨,忍不住每天去看,每天拍照。 一直以為 raspberry 是很外國的果子,經翻查資料,才知道這品種「茅莓」,是東亞及大洋洲原生的。 for the past few days, i can’t help walking up the hill not too far from home and check out those adorable ruby-like fruit ripening away along a grassy shrubby slope.  坊間一般稱這為紅桑子,我卻喜歡以士多啤梨的翻譯邏輯稱之為「樂是啤梨」。 據中國的網站資料,此攀爬灌木別名有紅梅消、茅莓懸鉤子、蛇泡簕等。一提,蛇泡簕在香港的植物詞彙指另一同屬植物 rubus reflexus。 百度上資料指植物果期為7、8月。不肯定是南北地域差別,還是氣候影響,這些果子在4月底便開始出現了。 i thought raspberry is a very western fruit. the fact is that there...
