Leisure, sports and creation all make my days fabulous. This botanical imprints on the silk scarf just done after the ride with bike team this week.
I must thank for the guys who're so kind to explore biking routes and their patience waiting for my windfalls picking.能夠把興趣、運動及創作混為一體是最好不過的活動，很多時要感謝的是我的單車隊友，他們發掘新路線，我尢其喜歡鄉間小路、魚塘花徑。這日騎行至皇崗口岸香港邊介，途經河邊撿拾葉子花托，回家馬上製作實驗，很有效果的植物印。多得隊友們耐心等候我拾葉影相，能夠與我同行創新路 - 我愛單車騎行！
That day we went to the Hong Kong / China boundary for a closer look of the China zone.
It's such a leisure ride in the bush
The northern part of Hong Kong is vast with greenery lush and water. Ponds with lilly and wetland with assorted plants.
Just passed by a river I saw this kind of flowers and found lots of the receptacles on the ground.
Curiosity brought me home to do the experiments
Back home with handful leaves and own coreopsis I immediately done the boiling prints.
After an hour boiling the imprints of leaves done on the silk scarf with resist prints from mulberry leaf.
I know the receptacle may not have color so I inserted the coreopsis in the centre of receptacle. It works. From the image above you will see the "Before & After". Orange from the dried eucalyptus, green from the plant picked on bike ride.
A day out of bike ride made me a happy day of the new species experiment.
