With a single flip of the tip it sent poor Nobs sailing through the air a hundred feet above the ground, straight back into the clump of acacias
from which the beast had leaped upon our kill--and then the grotesque thing sank lifeless to the ground.
There was a smell of acacias
in the air everywhere, and the laburnums were dripping gold over the walls of the gardens.
On a small plain which we crossed, a few stunted acacias
were growing; their tops had been bent by the steady trade-wind, in a singular manner -- some of them even at right angles to their trunks.
A few aloe plants and some chance-sown pellitory grew on the tops of the square pillars of the gates, which all but concealed the stems of a couple of thornless acacias
that raised their tufted spikes, like a pair of green powder-puffs, in the yard.
He pricked up his horse, and riding out from behind the acacias
he saw a hired three-horse sledge from the railway station, and a gentleman in a fur coat.
