Yes, glass tiles I bought from a surplus store. They were 4X6" tiles and I cut them down. Got this puppy grouted this morn. - outside where it's 102 right now. White spots show the sealer is still wet. Sick of this horrible summer heat. Behind it are two cinder blocks that have been sitting there a year waiting for grout. I finally put several outside under potted plants on the patio w/o grout. W/grout some day. Right now I'm glad to get this grouted and sealed cuz the dark green tiles - also from the surplus store - were frosted and looked dull. Got some tiles laid into the birdbath bowl already, and am anxious to get cementing them in.

Thanks, you two. CALAM: I haven't a clue where this one is going or what to plant in it. Needs a stem but I can't come up w/an idea cuz the danged thing is so heavy, I can barely lift it. It's sitting outside near the turbine pedestal now. I'm thinking I w/have to build a pedestal for it.
