  • Ruby Sun Dial

    About five years ago some friends had to reluctantly cut down their apple tree. Unknown to them, I saved a slice of the trunk and put it to one side to season. Now, five years later and to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary, I made a sun dial from the apple slice to return the tree to the garden it grew up in.

    Thanks for looking,
    Fred.

        That is lovely. It actually brought a tear to my eye. I thought it was very thoughtful of you and very skilfully done.

        We have an old apple tree that is coming to the end of its life. Saving a slice or 2 for a project of some sort is an excellent idea.

          Thanks for all your kind comments. The sun dial was very well received but I did have to warn them not to rely on it to time an airport run.
