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

Re: O.T.: RICK'S AMAZING CLOCK
ArialHere'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
ArialAnd there's a very
magnificent one in Geneva - appropriately enough in the 'English
Garden' right by their little lake..

Flower clocks, oh man... beautiful example my ass.
There is another one of those horrible flower clocks on Zurich's lake
shore, THE epitome of kitsch, sponsored by our watch industry,...
Visual pollution, that's what they are.
For some peculiar reason, Americans seem to like 'em.
Besides, David: Lake of Geneva is not so little, after all, "Lac
Léman" measures over 6'300 km2!
