Today’s view is entitled ‘BEFORE FLORIADE’.  The floral part of preparations for this year’s much-touted visitor-magnet is well advanced.  There is a reasonable question whether the well-fenced earthworks labelled as the construction site for something called the “RG Menzies Walk” will also be ready.  With Canberra’s climate, ‘they’ will be flat-out re-lawning the extensive areas of churned mud that now represent the Walk.  Perhaps it will all be concrete and gravel.  I wonder if the theme for this year’s festival will centre around tableaux along the Walk that represent significant events in the career of the former Primer Minister.  Given the ‘NO POLITICS’ rule that governs this chatline, I shall not speculate on the events that might be selected for that purpose, if indeed any are.
