Floral Clock

A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme for September 1st is Red.


Near the west entrance of Riverside Park in Guelph is a garden area, wheelchair accessible, with a multitude of plants and flowers that this time of year are at their height. It includes a gazebo and a floral clock, and is quite a peaceful spot to spend time in.

  2. Great clock! I love that they are making parks more accessible. We baby boomers are aging, like it or not.

  5. Floral clocks evoke memories of earlier decades. Now, people aren't even comfortable with analog time.

  9. Love the clock...do the flowers bloom at the times of day to follow the theme of the clock? Somehow I have Four O'Clock plants which open at 8 am, and close up during the heat of the day!
