    I'm going to make Nadia so sorry she decided to stay home today. The Neolitsea sericea are in bloom. At least these on Soulei trail are. I just saw one open flower cluster on the one closer in on Lower Asian Way. Everything I photographed on Neolitsea today seems to be male flowers. I'll have to pay more attention next week to what flowers are on which trees. I have no idea if female trees bloom at the same time or if there are any female trees here.

    AND, the Schefflera delavayi flowers are also open. The leaves are huge - that ruler is 18cm and there were leaves large than the one shown.
