Floral Clock maintenance
Edinburgh's Floral Clock, on the corner of Princes Street and the Mound, is the oldest surviving floral clock in the world. It was commissioned in 1903 and is replanted every year with around 35,000 frost-resistant plants. As part of the Sister City theme day, Nice Daily Photo featured a picture of the clock in all its glory. This one hopefully gives an indication of the painstaking work that's involved maintaining it!
