The Bloom Clock on English Wikiversity is an educational and research project dealing with the flowering times of plants. The project is easy to use for wiki-newbies, and has graphical interface pages for the flora of Southeastern Pennsylvania. The hope is that the Clock can serve as an "entry page" for attracting new Wikimedia contributors.
