Edinburgh floral clock (image from here)
Tempus doesn't half fugit! On this last day of 2018, I am looking forward - hoping for positive progress on so many fronts, personal, national, global. I thought as illustration for this post I would use the Princess Street Gardens floral clock in Edinburgh. When I was very young in the early 50s my mother and I used to travel once or twice a year from the Borders where we lived to Edinburgh for the day by coach. The treats included a trip to Woolworth's to buy a Dean abridged classic, and then down to the floral clock before eating our sandwiches further down the gardens. It used to thrill me. Of course as I grew up, and later lived in Edinburgh the clock faded to insignificance in my life. But in such a state of depressing current affairs, I am determined to focus on small pleasures, and make the most of them.
Wishing you all exquisite joys in 2019.
