Sun dial gets busy

Sun-dial on Castle Church in Stafford

At last this sun-dial has some work to do! Yes, it's properly Spring at last, with three days of warm sunshine in a row, and the croci and daffodils blooming.

The sun-dial is quite special, being dated 1624, as you can see - though the central gnomon is clearly much newer than that.
You can see it on the side of Castle Church in Stafford, just 100 yards from the Castle itself. Curiously, it's always called Castle Church, rather than by its dedication of St Mary's.
