COTTON TREE 紅棉


One fine day,




we got off 4 stops earlier,


and walked home.


In the blooming season of cotton trees,


big red flowers decorate the bare branches.


Strolling,


and picking up red crowns,



did not notice we were at the corner round.

哇,这就是红棉啊。第一次见到。
记得小时候有一首歌好象是唱广西的木棉少年的,可惜搜不着了。那时对这个南方的木棉少年太憧憬了。(我搜了一下,木棉和红棉同一回事儿)。。。
真得太美了,不能用语言来形容。。。

Fei An,
When I wrote this post, in my mind, there's always a song by a HK artist 罗文:
红棉
红棉盛放 天气暖洋洋 英姿勃发堪景仰
英雄树 力争向上 志气谁能挡
红棉怒放 驱去严寒 花朵竞向高枝放
英雄样 万众偶像 红棉独有傲骨干
我正直无偏 英挺好榜样 有上进雄心
坚决争光 结棉子 借风飘 四方树苗坚壮
红棉盛放 天气暖洋洋 英姿勃发堪景仰
英雄树 力争向上 红棉独有傲骨干
I always use 红棉树 as a character to tell iza stories on 正直.
In May, the seeds of cotton tree will ride on "light silk cotton" and fly everywhere.
Iza has collected some seeds. If you have a time, you may look into this tiny old post:)

I almost thought you lived on one of the small islands. But now you guys are taking the bus :)

By the way I always wonder where you got Iza's clothes. But I would believe it if you were to say you designed them all!

mama4, 我也以為自己住係孤島 ... 玩緊survivor :) 唔請家傭, 唔要補習 ... 前排差少少就癲咗。
有時, 我也會幻想逭些衫是自己設計 :)
孩子的衣服多是訂回來的 ... 最喜歡的是VDJ。
