In Samuel Beckett's play "Waiting for Godot" Godot never actually arrives. The forecast rain for East Gippsland did a pretty good audition for the role today. While it was cool overnight (about 10oC) and we scored 3mm yesterday evening the daylight part of the day was rather pleasant.
We set off on the morning walk quite early "to avoid the rain". This got some nice photos of flowers. The first is Hakea laurina (Pincushion Hakea, for obvious reasons) ...
We then went for another walk to Betka River. Not a great deal in flower except for Epacris impressa, mainly this pink form.
The aim of this next image was to show the dark clouds coming up from the West behind the rock at about 11:30am. (They seemed a lot darker than they appear here.)
Unlike Godot the rain has arrived, starting about 1815 and now (2030) honking down with strong wind and thunder. It stopped about 2100, having delivered 17mm.
