An Horologium Florae or flower clock, featured last week in The New York Times, intrigued me. And, of course, flower clocks would also be known as flox, er, phlox:
As I am having internet connection issues today, I am relying on the Flower Clock Link to tell most of the Horologium Florae story. Essentially, gardeners plant a variety of species that bloom throughout the day and night. One can tell "garden time" from the clock but not close enough to catch the 4:06 bus. When you're gardening, though, who cares about 4:06 -- a.m. or p.m.?
Enjoy reading and a few timely flower photos:
Any flower clocks in your past, present, or future? With or without Roman Numerals and/or upside-down clock faces?
