Centennial Park, sundial

This sun dial is located in the Column Garden in Centennial Park. The bronze sundial on the sandstone plinth features the inscription "Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May". The flower beds in the background feature some colourful Autumn blooms.

  1. "Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May"

    A nice reminder that we should, indeed, stop to "smell the flowers."
