Working on the Sundial bed again today .

Today I carried on with restructuring the Sundial Bed , so called because of what was once our lovely old , working sundial . 

Unfortunately the gnomon ( the bit of the sundial that projects the shadow to give  the idea of the time ) had been broken off for quite a while now and there was no way of fixing it .We tried to take off the remaining metal bit , but it was well and truly stuck . So what to do ?

Can't afford a new one ! So I decided we should re-use it some how .Maybe lying on the earth like this ...the fallen temple ruins look .....

or maybe ....plant it upside down and turn it into a bird bath !

            It took me ages to get it straight , but this idea was the winner .
