Edinburgh's Floral Clocks

Princes Street Gardens

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.

2011 Ceremony

This photo was taken on August 9, 2011 when a ceremony was held to commemorate the planting of the 2011 Floral Clock and the 150th Anniversary of the first firing of the One o'Clock Gun.

Here, one of the speakers for the One o'Clock Gun Association is giving some background information about the Floral Clock and the One o'Clock Gun.

The man standing on the extreme right, behind the clock, in this photo is George Robinson.  He carved the first wooden cuckoo for the floral clock, in his studio at Ramsay Lane, near Edinburgh Castle.  The cuckoo was fitted around 1953.
