Time flies: Outdoor clocks will keep you on schedule
Imagine a peaceful moment on your front porch. It’s just you, the gentle sound of a breeze rustling branches and the call of birds.
In this picture, there is no computer, iPad or even cell phone. In a tech-free zone, however, we have to be practical. The kids have to be picked up at 3:15, a cake needs to come out of the oven in an hour or it will be time for one appointment or another.
The solution? Pretty outdoor clocks, which serve two purposes. If you want to forget time, consider them simply part of the décor. But if you know that relaxation time will be up soon, that clock will keep you honest.
