Default Nexus 5 Android 4.4.2 Lockscreen widgets

Hi all, I just got my nexus 5 and right after I updated my system to Android 4.4.2, I tried to add widgets to the lockscreen, but it just doesn't work. I know you have to enable widgets under security in the settings and I did that. I just can't swipe left on the lockscreen to get that plus sign. Also dashclock doesn't work. Help! Any idea is much appreciated.

I find that I have to really swipe from the edge of the screen, some cases may prevent this or make it difficult.
Check out my three free albums on Google Music! Enjoy!

You have to expand the widget first. Just drag the clock widget downwards. When its expanded, try swiping your screen. It should work.

Default Word/Text clock lockscreen widget ?

Is there such a widget for a lockscreen, which would display a clock / time written in words ?? Like the clock face one on Pebble smart watch, for example?!
Example, the time is 5:36 and on the widget it would be displayed as "five thirty six" !

Thanks
