This wall's along a local highway. It faces east, some morning I'll get down there and snap a photo of it in the morning light. It's striking!

Hi Kirk,
The mosiac is combination of different types of tile and chunks of mirror. The tiles are ceramic floor, glazed-looks like standard 4"x4"-and some sort of stone.

Wow, that would be a lovely backdrop for a field of Purple Coneflowers! It is beautiful in itself tho. TFS! Jeanne S.

I love coneflowers but can't get them to grow for anything! I should try a mosaic wall, although I doubt my best efforts would yield anything like the one you posted pics of, NM Girl. Lucky you to drive by it everyday. That is a beautiful work of art!

LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing!

Question: Hubby & I are in the midst of buying a couple homes in FL for the family... being from NY, I have to ask, I noticed a lot of lanai's & sidewalks using INDOOR tiles in FL, what would you suggest as materials?
Slowly, but surely, I've always picked up any KEWL clearance tile stuff in Lowe's. Plus, with all the rentals we've rehabed, I have lots of leftovers.

Never be able to hold up in WNY, but would these work outside in FL? Cape Coral area. A couple houses we looked at were corner houses & need a solid fence for privacy. This would be SO attractive!

That's amazing!
And I lvoe the idea of the coneflower field. I'd like to let them take over one of my gardens.
