Ten to Nine


Since the unbelievably hot weather had eased up a little bit, I took the opportunity to take a much needed walk in my favorite walking spot, The Desert Botanical Garden.  I took this shot of the giant sundial and noticed that the shadow was almost touching the number nine.  I looked at my watch and sure enough, it was ten to nine.  That's a pretty darn accurate sundial.

Look at that sundial! What an amazing decoration with all the lovely cacti. I enjoy every photo you post of this desert garden.

It is definitely an Arizona sundial! Love the little cacti! Would be hard to wear on your wrist, though.

Always intrigued by sundials.

I like this sundial. I think it still would have been too hot for me though.

Magic! Love it.

Great idea, I've never seen such a sundial.

Agreed. It is a beautiful sundial. I was telling SWMBO just last night that you must be a docent at the Botanical Garden. Am I correct?

How these are as accurate as they are and how mankind figured out how to make them amazes me.

Now that's a sundial. I love it.

A sundial with cacti! What could be more appropriate for a desert botanical garden.

Love the Arizona sundial Sharon. A sundial is something that is definitely missing from my garden..I will have to amend that.

A very clever way to design a sundial.
