Edinburgh's Floral Clocks

History

A Floral Clock is planted in Edinburgh during the summer months each year.  The first was planted in 1903.  The idea has been copied by many other cities around the world.

Princes Street Gardens

Here, the 2008 Floral Clock is being planted on June 9, 2008.  Princes Street can be seen in the background.  The legend along the top of the clock reads "Reserve with Pride".

The cuckoo's box is in the upper-left corner.  When the clock is complete, the cuckoo will emerge every fifteen minutes.

There is a  smaller circle, to the right of this photo.  It has been planted with the legend:  "TA 100".
