I'm pretty much at a point where I consider the backyard complete, except for maybe hanging a mason jar chandelier from my wedding and adding black and white stripes, so I wanted to share some final pictures I took. I am more than happy with the end result, and as soon as the temperature drops a few more degrees (Alabama heat is miserable!) I will be spending every afternoon out here! And, once it is chilly enough to build a fire, I know we will enjoy the fireplace a lot as well. I'll try to snap a picture of the pergola at night, because the lighting is fabulous.
If you have forgotten what I was working with, here are a few before pictures (pardon my iphone):

Do you see the copper lighting in the corner of the pergola we installed?
Do you like my boxwoods? I'm still practicing my shaping technique!
So, what do you think? Does it look like my inspiration? I can't wait 'til the entire pergola is covered with the jasmine! Mmm ... I can smell it now! And combined with the tea olives and gardenias, it should smell heavenly back here.
If any of ya'll are interested in the sources, let me know and I'll do a follow up posts with the links. Have a great week!
