Usually, at this hour of the morning, an exquisite peace prevails. Sadly, due to the holiday weekend (Invasion Day, also known as Australia Day), the traffic on the Great Ocean Road drowns out the sound of the surf even at this hour of the morning. Invasion Day commemorates the landing of the British First Fleet in 1788. Photo by DWC.

One of the Australian Melaleucas, or paperbarks, much appreciated as flowering street trees, whose bark displays a papery exfoliation which had many indigenous uses. Some species have become a destructive weed, highly invasive in the Florida Everglades. I planted this Melaleuca to hide our rain water tanks (cisterns). Now it towers above them. PHOTO BY DWC
