That is a awesome job! I, too, love the mosaic design on the bench! What a lovely bench and nice sized fountain! I can see why the critters and birds frequent your fountain! Wonderful! Lovey dubby

stunning mosaic job and great fountain. Yes, by making nice parts, with a little planning, you'll eventually have a great whole.

Thanks for sharing your plans and completed work. Your environment is so opposite ours it was so interesting to see it in the background. And the mosaic is gorgeous. I tip my hat to you.

Thank you all so much! I'm glad you enjoyed seeing it. Our landscapes out west are so different from what most of you have. It took me a while to learn to love it here. I'm more of a tropical greenery lover! Smiling
