上環花街 sheung wan’s festive flower street

2015.2.15 | 蘇杭街 jervois street

每年農曆新年前,都不禁多去上環街頭走走,實在很喜歡滿街花盆簇擁的喜氣。

但年月變更,氣氛越見凋零。散佈的範圍縮小了,今年只見蘇杭街;從前滿街大棵大棵的桃花,粗粗樹幹都插在盛滿水的小膠紅桶或鐵罐。近年桃花少了,多的是桔、牡丹、芍藥、菊花。

every year days if not week before chinese new year, some inner streets in sheung wan will turn into ad hoc flower stalls. flower farmers/merchants will display festive flowers alongside pedestrian paths, the hood become a mini festive fair.  it is amazing to walk along these flower streets, colours, blossoms and fragrances are like brushing and showering blessings to all the passengers. sadly, the flower streets are shrinking as time passes. this year i am only seeing some flowers along jervois street.
