Oh my. That was what I was trying to find the other day. They had nothing like that. Seattle area has great items in their Goodwill stores.
Here in Dallas, OR, not so much. Rolling my eyes.

Those are beautiful Greg. I look forward to seeing them all planted. Lovey dubby

There were even more but these were the most reasonably priced. Guess in terms of availability it must be due to being a city...next time you're in PO Sticking tongue out

wow- is that planter on the far right in the first pic really deep enough? I almost bought one that shallow because I know they have shallow rooting, but I wasn't sure just how shallow it could be...

They will probably do great on that rock, especially the smaller varieties.
Greg those look wonderful, I love that the glass is so thick. Lovey dubby

Speaking of which have you tried that Lynn, or gotten you DH to try it? Has anyone on here?
I am wondering how "doable" drilling into bowls is???
Have several that would make great planters! I tip my hat to you.

DH drills containers drain holes for me. The really hard type of porcelain is the most difficult. keeping water on the area helps.
