garden armillary sundial

garden armillary
I knew when we decided to build again that I wanted to have a formal english garden. I love using antique garden benches, urns and statues inside as well as outside the home.

Here is a wonderful armillary that we purchased years ago and stored until it was time to use it in our garden. Each area of my back yard has a focal point of ornamentation.

Armillaries are these wonderful celestial globes that consist of metal hoops. They are a great marriage of science and art. They played a practical as well as decorative role in greek civilization 2 millenniums ago.
