This is my dear sister and brother-in-law's house as seen from the pergola. The house sits at a right angle from the road and faces the garden. I should have taken a couple of photos of the garden from the upstairs window so you could see how it is layed out.
This is the pergola as seen from two different angles. The wisteria smells divine! My DBIL made the structure out of osage orange cleaned off of some land--so I guess it could be called garden junk--salvaged wood! They have plans to lay pavers under this so that they can put tables and chairs there for parties. There is even electricity to the pergola and it looks beautiful with little white lights on it at Christmas.
This is an aisle made from osage orange. They are going to put cross pieces so the sweet autumn clematis can form a canopy overhead. My daughter says she wants to walk down this aisle to the pergola to be married.
I don't know the name of these ramblers, but aren't they beautiful? They grow along the drive.
