Sundial Surprise!

I was surprised and so pleased when I opened the Mother's Day box from my boy!

Well, my boy is going to be 30 years old this summer and he is a Machinist.

I did mention to him that I would love to have a sundial for the garden...and it worked. He made me this for my Mother's Day gift. Isn't he sweet?
And it really works for telling time!!!

He said that he put four holes in it because he didn't know how I was planning on mounting it and thought I would need to screw it down. Right now I just built a brick pillar and have it setting on it.  What you can't see are the numbers that he put on it. Thanks Son!
