Sundial Mottoes

It's been cold, wet and windy here today - definitely not outside gardening weather, so I have been tidying inside.

And found my "A Little Book of Sundial Mottoes". First published 1914, republished 1919. Amazing what they thought important at the beginning and end of World War I.

Let Others tell of Storms and Showers
I'll only Count your Sunny Hours

The motto chosen by Queen Alexandra for the sundial at Sandringham.

I must browse a little further.
