The hours pass and are reckoned to our account.
I ended up missing most of Becky’s Time Square challenge in December, this photo wold have been the last one.
The astronomical clock in Exeter Cathedral is 15th century. The clock depicts what was then the known solar system, with the black fleur-d-lys sun going round the dial every 24 hours.The dial above the main one was added in the 18th century and it has one hand to tell the minutes.
Day 9 of Becky’s December square challenge, I haven’t managed each day, but she doesn’t mind. Today’s popped up by chance while I was at Powderham farm shop. I don’t think he knows whether it’s dawn or not though.
But he’s quite funky.
Becky has a clock today, along with some more metery things!
. . . in time from 1830 to 2018,
no wonder she looks so confused!
Becky’s in the blues today, in a good way that is, but she doesn’t know what time it is.
This photo was going to be my Wordless Wednesday, but I realised how it marked the passing of time.
When I was in my teens, I remember the archaeological dig in front of the cathedral, but I didn’t realise the significance of the Roman baths they exposed and then covered over. Now I wish I’d taken more notice. A few years ago, the city made a bid for lottery funding to open up the baths, but it failed, so I don’t suppose I’ll get to see them.
Becky has glowing square sunsets today!
