庭院裡的油桐花

油桐花開了大概三成,當初他嚷著一定要在庭院種幾株桐花樹,這樣每年四五月才有美麗的桐花可以欣賞,油桐樹生命力極強,社區本來原生油桐非常多,雖然白色油桐落花美麗,但每到冬季落葉也非常驚人,所以鄰居都把油桐樹減少,種一些像是松柏類的植物。

另一半種了5株油桐樹,近距離看著油桐春夏秋冬四季不同變化,也是很奇妙的感受,我不排斥多種類種植,就像人必須要吸收不同的新知識一樣,油桐樹雖然抓地力不夠,被一些人視為不能水土保持的植物,這未必太狹隘,但我想我們身處的這裡本來就是以油桐著稱,不用去刻意看輕油桐樹。

桐花開放時,也是昆蟲很好的蜜源植物之一,那天下午站在樹蔭處觀察,不少種類的蝴蝶穿梭桐花,形成一幅很美的景色。
