ABC Wednesday: S is for Sundial

Shooting my sundials for an S word I also captured my squeaky swing as well as shadows.

This sundial is situated correctly and keeps splendid time.
This sundial is two hours fast and needs to be settled into a better position.
My sundials used to sit on top of my deck wall until I started growing vines over it. You can see the shadows of the vines that haven't lost all of their leaves yet for winter.

What a great sundial, Carver!! ours is on an exterior wall, mainly for decoration. Happy ABC!

S is for ...

Great "S" shot. Love the sundial, shadows and that squeaky swing has character. We have a sundial too, but not much good this time of year as you need sun and we haven't had much.

Karen said...

Oh cool! I've always wanted a sundial.

Funny, I always wanted a sundial in my yard. I just never got around to getting one as I don't see them here. Your porch and swing looks so inviting!

Cool! Wish I had one of those sundials. Have a superb week,

What a sweet post for "S". You have a lovely porch, even if the swing is squeaky.

Ahh the beauty of charm! Your porch is it. I love swings. Your sundial is intriguing with its speed. Thanks again for showing us the beauty around you.

A lovely collection of sun dials. Does time pass slowly when you are out relaxing in the squeaky swing?

Very neat shadows.

Shoes, have a happy Thanksgiving!

I love sundials (don't have one though - yet!) What a special post for S week, with your squeaky swing, sundials and shadows (and don't forget those Scattered leaves!) Your deck looks like a very serene and inviting place to sit and relax.

I too had no idea sundials could run fast - can they run slow, too? (Don't reckon they need to be reset for Daylight Saving Time, though!) :-)

In summer I would love to sit on this old bank and watch the sundials ! But I doubt that I can read them, I never tried.

How wonderful! For the "S" meme and also just because I adore the sundial -- they are just charming. I wonder if one would work in Florida?
