Later this week, we will add 2 recycled ceramic insulators; one short & 1 tall; which will be planted with grasses & shrubbery. They'll add to the grouping nicely; they are a dark brown color....


Detail of recycled glass orbs; they really do sparkle in the sunlight & draw the eye; I'm really happy we went with a contrasting color!

It will also have a planter, to be filled with planted & river pebbles. Yesterday, I purchased some amazing wood for the bench-tops: thick slabs of black walnut that came from a huge tree in Eagle. I've been promised pics of the actual tree, & will post soon.. ...
