This sundial is located in Hermann Park, in Houston, Texas, outside of the natural science museum. This morning we got there before people began to show up to get a photo of the sundial. As you can see, it is showing the time to be a little after 9 AM. To us, it was a little after 10 AM because of daylight savings time.

    This is a perfect theme shot, Ann. This is the simplest and earliest clock known. I've never seen a sun dial work so well. Excellent photo!
