Outside Clock

A large wall clock in the garden helps you keep track of the time you’re spending outdoors and reminds you to put on more sunscreen.

I put a clock on our barn and met with much resistance from my husband -- he chastised me for not using the sun as my timepiece! I have to agree there is something to be said about just going with the flow outside, although there are those instances when one has to be somewhere and then it's less stressful to be able tot keep a quick eye on the time. Hadn't thought about the sunscreen aspect, good idea.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

I had one in my GH because I lose track of the time out there, but I left it in there over the summer one year and it melted! Blinking I really want another one, AND one for the garden.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Boy, I would have to hunt high and low to find a clock that could go with the lazy-looking yard I got. BUT I always go out with SPF of Zinc Oxide 9.8%
and a wide brim hat and gloves and long sleeves just because there's not a clock out there... Whistling

I usually wear my watch covered with my gloves. Sometimes not a good idea. The other day I didn't have it covered and couldn't figure out why the next day at work my wrist kept getting dirty. Confused

I go to goodwill etc to find clocks. Once i FOUND one for free in a bulf trash pick up. I took it home and painted it royal blue for the garden. It just had a cracked face but who cares?
