We were on our way to see the Napoleon exhibition (more about this in a future blog), and we saw another line up of photographers. They were in front of an enormous bunch of gladioli on the lawn at the Arts Centre! We were aware that Barry Humphries was in town from this post:http://bicyleblog.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/a-seniors-sunday-matinee.html
And - between the photographers and the gladioli - there he was! We missed the speech, but we saw him unveil the plaque on front of the flowers, which I have subsequently learned is to celebrate the reopening of Hamer Hall in a couple of days time. On the ABC news, it was mentioned that the flowers were a gift from him!
