My place in time #30
I found it while weeding and brought it back to life. It could probably do with a polish, and I will get around to doing that....soon.
I took a round of wood and nailed the sundial on the top. It did have a fancy bit that did the sun casting shadow, god know where that is. I should have had a better look where I found it under some bushes, I think it's long gone.
The nail works anyway.
A bit of advice when setting your sundial. The 'nail' should be pointing South. The bird design is pointing true North.
If you set it on daylight saving time, the bird design will not be pointing true North. So if you are a bit of a perfectionist, you would set the shadow cast an hour slower.
This is in perfect alignment with true North, the time is almost a quarter to three.
