Modest enough not to offend.Understated with a delicate sweetness about it.  As you wander through a garden it’s lovely to find treasures like this. There will beea a gradual appearance of a patina on it’s surface  The patina adds character to the sundial blending it in with its surroundings. The shadow indicator called a gnomon. The gnomon  is in the shape of a bird. The sun causes a shadow to fall across the numerals indicating the time of day

Their name refers to the humming sound made by their tiny, beating wings. Each species of Humming Bird creates a different humming sound, depending on the speed of its wing beats. Their wings rotate in a figure of eight rotations at tremendous speeds.. These rotations help them to hover while feeding on the nectar from the flowers.

A polished version of this Humming Bird Antiqued Sundial is available.
