The Flora Desk Clock ($64) by Roost is a totally over the top homage to the intricate, delicate beauty of flora. If we were designing an indoor secret garden with Elizabeth Taylor or something, these would be a must. We like the realism of the photo etching technique on silver-plated steel (very fanciful). Since we can choose to tell time on a mum, lily, or pansy, we have to figure out what our favorite flower is already (as if we haven't been asked a million times). And we have to admit, the brass-plated bee details on the hands are cute.
