Morning glories blooming at a certain time, for example, and other flowers opening at noon or late evening. Just my fantasy I guess!

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! Cheers, Gunnar
