This little clock is easy and colorful and reminds me of spring. For those, in cold climates, it can brighten a desk and remind you of the upcoming season. I was inspired by the colorful flowers in my garden, and the homeschooling studies that we have been undertaking. It was fun to fiddle with a clock mechanism and try and figure out how it all works.
