Washington Post has an article on how to plant your own floral clock, just like the one built by Linnaeus.

That is just too cool. I can’t wait to try it.
Now that I think about it, there is a really cool climate change story in this. Climate change is wreaking havoc on phenology (the timing of biological events). How better to emphasize this point than by a seasonal (instead of day-long) flower clock? I might look into this and try it out this year. I might just blog about it too.
Which flowers will open when (and which will grow at all) depends on your dirt and climate. Its fun to try to figure out which ones work for your own garden! Here is what works in Northern MO 🙂
