Our world: floral clocks,

In 1978, I used to spend my lunch time during the warmer months in Albert Park. The students of Auckland University were and still are very lucky to have a beautiful park adjacent to the campus. They frequently change the flowers in the clock.
We took our wedding photos near by. So you can imagine why this is another of my favourite place of Auckland.
This park has an important history. Please click on link  Idiots remove the hands. Now it is a handless clock.

Photo: When I was in Melbourne in late Oct, they were preparing the floral clock. I hope the hot weather hasn't scotched the poor plants. Jenny Chew and Aloysius Ting, please go and check for me.

This clock is in Melbourne. I was there in late Oct. I hope the heat hasn't killed the flowers. It has a recorde of 43 degrees Celsius.

I wished I had an aerial view of this clock. I would love to know how it showed the time. What a lovely post. Greetings, Jo
