Time to water? Nope, time to relax!

Sitting out on the deck with a friend today, I realized that we dont have an outdoor clock, and that everytime we need to know what time it is, we have to get up and go inside. SO, after she left, I got busy!
First I drilled a quick hole in the front of the watering can and inserted the  clockworks from an old clock Id saved for just this kind of thing.
Next step was to Gorilla glue the glass beads in place and then WAIT. Thats the part I hate the most, waiting!
Once it was done, I filled it with flowers, and we officially have the TIME to to relax!
