It's funny you should say that Trudy, in the last week while it's been gloriously sunny I've noticed I can tell what time it is by how many shadows the columns cast on the back wall.Trudytropics wrote:Ste wrote:A nice big fancy stone sun dial would look great infront of the ruin.

I'd imagine due to Goggles meticulous geometry, with the correct celestial alignment, he won't need a sun dial or a clock The Temple of Kukulcan has nothing on this
I've got plans for the 2 Kneeling Buddhas to sit in front of the temple and ther'll definitely be more planting going on. The space I've left in front of the 2 centre columns will have Passiflora and grass in to climb and spread (I've done one already) and I'll be hiding Alocasia pots behind the lower sections of broken wall either side as well as dotting Cycas Circinalis and revoluta about in that area too.
There'll also be bamboo, Phormium, Fatsia and Cordyline going at the right side and trailing Heucherella tumbling down from the planters on top of the outer columns.
More internal dressing to come with plants too.
