酸葉膠藤的花 flowers of sour creeper (urceola rosea/ecdysanthera rosea)

幾年前寫過此木質攀藤,因為在濕地公園多番看到它可愛的果實。 猜不到原來自己日常經過的地區都有她的蹤跡。 酸葉膠藤是香港原生也普遍。 這陣子,在些山頭綠坡,看到一雲粉紅花霧,很大機會就是她。 酸葉膠藤開花熱熱鬧鬧,小小的粉紅花冠成圓錐花序。花期就在此時即初夏。 lately i have been drawn by the pink mist of flowers along road sides and slopes of victoria road. it was a pleasant surprise to find out that i actually knew this plant before, but the imagery is so different that i did not connect. i saw this woody climber...

一月中這星期天,天陰微雨,決定起行走進郊外。原因是近年香港人都愛鑽進郊外,好天氣的週末,山中的人多比美購物區,所以有點刻意避開人潮。天氣不佳但未至於差的日子,應該是寧靜郊外行的好時機。 但仍然是不折扣的城市人,選擇還是很城市的路線。 countryside has become the new hot spot for hongkongers in recent years. people rush to country parks and rural areas over weekends and public holidays. it is more so when weather is good. i started avoiding crowd on blue sky days. last sunday, the sky was grey. i told myself it could be...

心型植物代表:珊瑚藤 a vine with heart-shaped parts: pink coral vine (antigonon leptopus)

珊瑚藤開花很奪目,可謂無人不愛。粉紅的花色,總是一串花鈴般熱鬧。 珊瑚藤是多年生木質藤本植物,半落葉,花期長。 這植物特質多,葉和花質感像紙,而兩者都呈心形。互生的葉是卵形或卵狀三角形,而基部深心形。花更有趣,由五個似花瓣的苞片組成,呈三菱形。 今天聖誕,就借此植物,送上心意和祝福。 coral vine is really pretty when blossoming. the pink 3-d heart-shaped flowers are papery and pleasantly pink. they bloom for many months and never come alone, the flowers always look cheery and appealing. this mexico-native is perennial and having leaves in heart to arrow shape. it is a fast growing plant...
