Silent Sunday: The flame tree

with 3 comments

I just love this time of year when the flame trees all over Dubai burst into colour like an explosion in a paint factory. Unfortunately, it was a dusty day today so this pic doesn't show the true glory of that vibrant orange-red against the deep blue of the sky. But, trust me, when you see it in the flesh, it's utterly gorgeous.

I just love this time of year when the flame trees all over Dubai burst into colour like an explosion in a paint factory. Unfortunately, it was a dusty day today so the sky is looking washed out, but against the usual sailor-blue of the pre-summer sky, these trees are divine

  2. Fab photo! The Flame tree and the Desert Rose in AR always bring a smile to my face. Just wish my flame trees would ignite!
