What a marvelous and colorful post, Pietro! I love the sundials! They are lovely against the blue sky! Of course, I just love blue skies these days!! Hope you have a great week!


Bellissime queste meridiane piene di colori Pietro, sicuramente dietro ad ogni disegno si cela una leggenda o una simbologia.

Un saluto e buon proseguimento di settimana!

ciao Pietro, buona giornata.

What a fine idea! Beautiful.
A real find for you.

What fun! Brilliant :)

What happened on your weekend?

Ciao Pietro, mi piace molto la meridiana che rappresenta l'Africa, forse perchè adoro i leoni:-) C'è sempre molto da scoprire come ad una piccola Versailles:-) Un cordiale saluto, e..complimenti. Sei stato alla reggia di Caserta? Pensare che abbiamo dei tesori inestimabili e spesso lo stato non se ne cura.

ciao Pietro, non so in citta ma qui in collina ne sono caduti 40cm di neve.
Oggi se ho voglia uscirò a fare qualche foto.

They are beautiful, and great photos.

Beautifully crafted, interestingly styled vertical declining Sundials Pietro, I am very impressed! I'm sure I would like to make my own personal sundial.
All the best~

Oh my! How interesting and very creative.
