Every summer visit to Edinburgh includes a stop by the brilliant Floral Clock. 🌺🌼🌺🌼🌺🌼🌺🌼🌺 🌼🌺🌼🌺🌼🌺🌼🌺🌼🌺Since our 2020 holiday was cancelled, I’ll miss seeing the 2020 Floral Clock theme which was to mark 350 years of Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh [RBGE] with a series of events celebrating the contribution of the Botanics.
Quite recently I read it was to be redesigned as a tribute to NHS workers for their efforts in fighting Covid-19.
The new design includes the message “Edinburgh thanks all key workers”
The Floral Clock dates back to 1903 ~ a collaboration between Superintendent of Parks in Edinburgh, John McHattie & clockmaker James Ritchie, and is the oldest clock in the world. in that year it had only an hour hand; a minute hand was added the following year.
Twelve feet wide and tens of thousands of flowers planted in this verge inside Princes Street Gardens, it’s keen design is impossible to overlook. 👀 📷: @passionfornyc

Like a #melancholic postcard. Front and back. -Today ride was beautiful. To the beach 🌊 and then a short walk into the woods where I found this two abandoned cars. One was nicely decorated with some shoes and the other was completely colonised by wild plants. I find them really beautiful and melancholic at the same time 🍂 🍃-
🤔 Wondering if the cities of the future will have lots of new intelligently laid out modern office spaces and urban areas or if simply everybody will be working from their nice homes in the countryside ☀️🌳
