Sundials

The first 3 photos were taken in the Botanical Garden, Padua. The last 2 are of a sundial in a small park not far from Myrtleford, in north-eastern Victoria, Australia. I like the contrast in styles!

    LOVED the Italian sundials! There are lots of different kinds of sundials – my husband got me a glass one for our anniversary a few years ago that sits on our apartment windowsill, and it has a date line for our anniversary that the time shadow follows every year on our special day. In addition to telling the time, it makes colorful rainbows in the room!

  3. Cool, Yvonne! I’ve bookmarked that link for when I have a place with more sun than this one.
    Of course you can make one…I know you can do it.

  4. I like them all. PS I have a mini sundial necklace that I bought in France – it works too.

    I love sundials. I have to go and examine them, even on cloudy days. I made a mini one in a box a few years ago for Cheryl’s Valentine gift.

  9. Those Italian ones look fairly modern….but maybe they were just ahead of their time.
    Speaking of time….111 days!

  10. Interesting that the Italian ones look newer and more modern than the Australian ones. Very interesting indeed.
