龍和道的金蒲桃 golden penda (xanthostemon chrysanthus) along lung wo road

今天立法會選舉公佈結果。最近龍和道上金黃閃耀,是特殊的感應? 其實是龍和道的公路中間,種植一排金蒲桃,正應時開花。 金蒲桃來自澳洲,在香港的公園和樹道蠻常見。這常綠小喬木,夏秋之間開花。金黃色的花球,來勢洶洶,而且花期長。 大家細心端詳美麗的聚傘花序,會發覺主角是濃密的雄蕊花絲而並非花瓣。 一絲一絲聚合起來成傘,爾後更會成果。世事與自然界道理也如是。 yesterday the city went through the legco election, today is the result day. we are not discussing the election here. it just happened that two days ago i went pass admiralty and the government hq and i walked all the way to central. along the route, there is lung wo...

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...

白楸的花 turn-in-the-wind blooms

這陣子走到山邊、郊外,都會看到白楸正值花季。花沒有開出奪目的色彩,但每棵樹都沉淡地綻放熱鬧滿樹的花。 白楸是本地原生小型喬木,花雌雄異株。白黃色細小花朵密集組成(總狀)花序生於枝頂(頂生),映照不太壯大的樹身,感覺濃郁喧鬧。 快到你身邊的綠地方,應該不難看到白楸,欣賞一下這種低調但強烈的植物季候景致。 同時,讓你參考年前10月寫過白楸的果 - 《白楸的果 turn-in-the-wind and there are fruit》,準備接下來這物種的果季。 turn-in-the-wind is common in and native to hong kong. it is its flowering season now. you won’t miss it even though there is no bright colour. small yellowish white flowers build dense towers at tips of branches, or flowers in terminal, branched racemes in...
