蕲春四宝

\"蕲春有四宝、龟、蛇、竹、艾草\",这是世代流传于蕲春民间谚语。

蕲蛇
蕲蛇为剧毒蛇,相传人被咬伤,不出五步即死,故称\"五步蛇\"。因它全身黑质白花,又名白花蛇。蕲蛇头扁,呈蛇头扁,呈三角形,背黑褐色,头腹及喉部白色,散布有少数黑褐色斑点,称\"念珠斑\"。属部稍扁,尾尖一枚鳞片尖长,叫\"角质钩\",破腹自杀。蕲蛇虽毒,却是我国的名贵传统中药,是封建王朝皇上指定进贡的珍品。是现今出口的珍贵药材。
蕲蛇味甘咸,性温,蛇肉具有祛风湿,散风寒,舒筋活络,并有镇痉、止痒的功能。能治风湿性疾病。
蕲龟
蕲龟的形状与普通龟相似,不同的是背甲上生着细长而浓密的绿色绒毛,所以蕲龟又叫\"绿毛龟\"。
蕲龟自唐宋以来就负有盛名,人们常饲养于庭院以供观赏。将蕲龟放入清水中(一日换一次水),绿毛轻漾,飘浮满盆,金丝浮动,晶莹耀眼,既像一团青苔在水中沉浮,又像镶嵌在白玉中的一块翡翠,如捞出水外,绿毛紧贴龟背,金丝井然不乱,颇为奇特,外商更视为奇宝,竞相购买,价值昂贵。
蕲龟既是美丽的观赏动物,又是营养价值极高的滋补良药,民间传说食用蕲龟可以延年益寿。龟肉含有丰富的脂肪,蛋白质,维生素A和钙、磷、铁等营养物质,有滋阴补血之功。
蕲竹
蕲竹是蕲春的特产之一,明代弘治《黄州府志》记载:\"蕲竹,亦名笛竹,以色莹者为簟,节疏者为笛,还须者为杖\"。因为它产在蕲地,性能状态又与一般竹子不同,所以叫蕲竹为绕节,节与节之间辗转相绕,组成一个个的棱形,状如罗汉肚,蕲竹有大小之分,大蕲竹有茶杯大,小蕲竹中有手杖粗。大蕲竹贵在作簟,色泽晶莹、有如琉璃、美玉、质地坚韧,劈篾如丝,柔软如绵,折叠如布。热天,人睡在上面,既透凉,又爽汗;起身后,而迹经久不更,用蕲竹做的竹笛、箫管、音质清幽柔和,有细水下幽潭,珍珠落玉盘之妙,白居易形容它\"笛愁春尽梅花里,簟冷秋生薤叶中\"。
蕲艾
蕲艾比一般更香,人药治病疗效更好。
蕲艾茎直生,叶北白色,柔厚而有茸毛,它多生长在田埂地边或山坡,靠水向阳。
蕲艾是名贵药材,茎和叶都可以入药,其味苦或微甘,性微温。据现代化学分析,蕲艾含十七种已知化合物,能治疗多种疾病。
蕲艾还具有异香,可以作调原料,枝叶熏烟能驱蚊蝇,具有杀菌的功效。蕲春人更是把蕲艾作为吉祥之物。至今端午节这一天,人们仍喜欢用蕲艾与昌蒲一起点熏室,这样能灭杀和控制空气中的许多细菌或病毒,对蚊蝇有明显的杀伤效力。同时,蕲艾含浓厚的芳香的挥发油成分,对头痛,鼻塞,胸闷有明显的镇静感,从时令上讲,端午正值初夏,接近梅雨季节,空气潮湿,细菌繁殖,室内易生霉,门窗挂艾,纯洁空气,净化环境,是民间传统的卫生习俗。

How interesting!

Denyce,

Many places in China have mugwort. So, if you say Chinese mugwort, it may not necessarily be Qizhou mugwort. If you say “spotted venomous snake”, people will not relate it to the Four Qizhou Treasures. However, people would immediately realize what Beijing roast duck and Kentucky chicken are. Therefore, I think if you call them Qizhou (or Qichun) Mugwort, ... and etc., you will have more time for sleep. Just kidding!
