Princes Street Gardens
A Floral Clock is planted in Edinburgh during the summer months each
year. The first was planted in 1903.
The idea has been copied by many other cities around the world.
2003, a Winter Clock has been planted on the same site, in the corner
of West Princes Street Gardens, near the foot of the Mound. A
Christmas Crib has been installed beside it for a few weeks each year,
The picture above shows the Winter Floral Clock in January 2007.
This photo was taken from the steps leading down from the foot of the
Mound into West Princes Street Gardens.
It is from these steps that photographs of the clock were taken
in the early 1900s., several being featured on postcards. Here is a
postcard from 1904:
