雙翼豆快影 quick snap: yellow poinciana (peltophorum pterocarpum)

這陣子雙翼豆開花了。大雨然大太陽的天氣,應該是花開得如此燦爛的原因吧。 之前已經專文寫過,所以不再作詳細資料描述。 只想點出,雙翼豆開花的肢體型態很有剛勁的美感。每個花簇把有如一個巴掌,枝幹分明,豔花的花苞從枝底有序向上伸延。花本身美得野性,而植物本身卻展示條理的理性。 it is now flowering season of yellow poinciana. only at this time i realize there are quick many of them in this city. at other time, this plant is like an easy guy, hiding among the green. if you want to know more about this tree information wise. check my previous post....

金杯藤 cup of gold (solandra maxima)

這植物來自中南美,人和自然的性味原來真的緊扣,金杯藤同樣發放美洲人的熱情奔放。 木質藤本,藤莖粗大纏繞盤伸,具蒼勁毛筆字的勁道。葉深綠亮澤,長橢圓形,互生。 最不得了的是那金杯大花。這相片可證明,一天經過堅道,明明人在對面馬路,遙遙就見到堅道花園黃燦燦的金杯! (堅道花園  caine road park) 金杯藤花最初是淡黃色,盛放後變金黃。芬芳。有雄蕊五枚;花冠五淺裂,每裂片中間有紫褐色紋理。 金杯藤近年開始普及種植公園,但植物有毒性。 endemic to central america, this vigorous woody vine is also known as hawaiian lily. cup of gold bores thick stemmed liana, quite big and leathery green leaves and large chalice-shaped yellow flowers. the flowers start out yellow and turn deeper golden as they age. they are fragrant,...

仲春芒果花季 mid spring, mago blooms

雖然沒有鮮豔的花色,但每年芒果樹開花,那種爆發力讓我無法抗拒。 芒果屬於漆樹科,特色包括花小,缺少花瓣,成頂生或腋生圓錐花序。 芒果原籍南亞,而在香港無論市區和村落,他們都深入我們的周圍如鄰里街坊。  (幾棵芒果是香港公園的老成員。these few mango trees steps away from the east entrance of hong kong park are old members of the park.) mango blooms are always explosive, so even they are of earthy tone not really fleshy, the power is there. therefore this blog year after year can’t help noting the arrival of the flower...

非尋常之春紅 – 大葉欖仁、大花紫薇、楓香 unusual spring colours – bangal almond, queen crape myrtle and sweet gum

2016 年本部落沒有寫「冬紅」,今冬特暖,落葉樹木週期紊亂。立春多日,到了二月下旬,楓香、大花紫薇、大葉欖仁落紅之象方定。 是因為天氣太暖和嗎?抑或植物也覺時季錯亂,遂施展渾身解數,以更艷麗色彩補償,今年遲來的冬紅更濃稠。很美,卻美得令人心亂。 this blog hasn’t featured any winter colour this past season. the reason is that we have experienced one of the warmest winters in history. deciduous trees did not shed leaves as their biological clocks were messed up. spring has come long, and some of these trees are finally changing colours lately. is...
