Flame trees

IMG_2135

Oh the flame trees will blind the weary driver

And there’s nothing else could set fire to this town

There’s no change, there’s no pace

Everything within its place

Just makes it harder to believe that she won’t be around

Words from an absolute Aussie classic by Cold Chisel

    Nice Ruby.

      Thank you – these aren’t the best example but I love the trees at the moment!

        Ruby needs to model in front of a few more then…. Strike a pose Ruby.

    I love the look. With tail down and sad eyes she could be thinking the words.

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Sep 18 2013 5:01 pm

      Yes – and I love the song too (although not generally a fan of cold chisel):)

    Oooh, colour! Having set a poetic tone, I’ve penned a limerick for Ruby:

    There was a young dog from down under
    Who’s mission in life was to plunder
    She stole lots of food
    Which was terribly rude
    How she doesn’t pop is a wonder.

    Gorgeous! 😀

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Sep 19 2013 6:20 am

      Thanks – you must have these trees in SA don’t you?

      • Sonel / Sep 19 2013 3:26 pm

        Oh yes, we have a few of them here. They are beautiful but I was talking about the shot of Ruby with them in the background. She is so gorgeous! 😀

      • rubytheblacklabrador / Sep 19 2013 8:40 pm

        Oh! thank you – hard to get her and the trees in though:)

  11. Clowie / Sep 18 2013 9:10 pm

    They’re very pretty trees.

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Sep 19 2013 6:21 am

      They are – they flower with no leaves and then the flowers drop off and the leaves come. Look very pretty when there are rows and rows of them:)
