Flame Tree Skywatch

Oh the flame trees will blind the weary driver
And there's nothing else could set fire to this town

- That's from the song "Flame Trees" by Aussie band Cold Chisel. It's a great song and also has been covered beautifully by Sarah Blasko. I think my favourite version is by the Sacred Heart School as heard in the film Little Fish... it's just gorgeous.

Blue skies have returned after a couple of days of much needed rain here in Brisbane easing the fire restrictions... and the flame trees are exploding into a riot of crimson.

Light up your life today with other skies posted at Skywatch Friday.

Flame trees have a most unusual flower structure, don't they? The colours at this time of the year are to die for: clear blue sky, purple of the jacaranda and the red of the flame tree.

How lucky we are!

Is that what they are singing. I love the song but could never make out the words.

Wow, nice shot and beautiful colors!

I love the fact that while we're heading towards winter, I can get some spring from down under!
