I am dreaming of having a sun clock on my house or in my garden but as the corner of the house is facing south, I would need two of them. I could have one in the garden but more than half of it is in a shadow at least five months of a year. I am actually dreaming of having big garden one day but I am not sure that this will ever happen. So, with or without sun clock, I have realized that I keep taking photos of those old ones that I usually spot on churches, castles or old buildings. This past days I saw three, and they were all very beautiful, although plain. I found two of them in one of the most beautiful parts of Slovenia. I have never before seen so many old orchards, renovated old houses and beautiful meadows with magnificent views. I wonder who made all those sun clocks and if they were of any use. Today people don't care about them anymore, having mobile phones handy all the time. A pity. Maybe we should at least sometimes turn our clocks back to the past. Probably we would have more time if we did.
