Spent a quiet morning at the Botanical Gardens. Quiet largely because it was raining I think – don’t people have macs and brollies? – and chillier than it has been since I arrived. Lovely and fresh.
We had a big storm last night with strong winds, too, so most of the flowers weren’t looking their best. In fact, they’re probably embarrassed that I took their photos. Bad petal day.
I had fun getting to know some of the endemic birds (thanks Ivan for the tip on the bird book) and saw my first Kookaburra. He wasn’t laughing though. Maybe it was the rain.
