David, beautiful example!  I always thought a flower clock told time by the flowers alone, not by mechanical hands. Morning glories blooming at a certain time, for example, and other flowers opening at noon or late evening. Just my fantasy I guess! Diana

Here's a total irrelevancy: Anyone ever heard of a flower clock? They were very big in England during Eliot's time. Woodhouse mentions them in a Bertie and Wooster story. Diana


And there's a very magnificent one in Geneva - appropriately enough in the 'English Garden' right by their little lake..
