Statue and Floral Clock

The Allan Ramsay Statue stands above the site of the floral clock in West Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh.  The floral clock has been created each summer for over 100 years, and recently for a few winters.

However, the site was bare, apart from a covering of snow when this photo of the Allan Ramsay statue was taken on December 23, 2009.  However the box for the clock's cuckoo can be seen in front of the statue.
