More Copper on the Pavilion

I visited the temple site this morning to see three things.
First on my list was to see all the copper on the pavilion.
I took a lot of pictures.
This building is beautiful!
The pavilion will be a place for families to visit and wait for brides and grooms.
The windows have wooden arches.  They were also on my list to see.
Last on my list was the new beehives at the north entrance.
These are made from quartzitic sandstone.
The beehive on the west is a little tricky to see, but it's in place.
There will be lights along this porch, but they aren't in place yet.
Masons worked at the southeast tower entrance.
My camera peeked inside.
The east door was open.
There were too many things in the way to get a good look.
I did notice some unexpected repair work above the south entrance.
Everything has to be perfect.
Ultimately, the brick will be similar to the brick above the north entrance.
I took a lot of pictures of the fountain, but I'm only sharing this one photo today.
I was delighted to get a better look at the urn for the north planter this morning.  It reminds me of the fountain. 
The Provo South Stake is holding a fireside this Sunday evening at 7 o'clock.  One of the speakers will be an archaeologist who was involved with the excavation of the original tabernacle.
The new Provo City Center Temple President, Allen C. Ostergar, and the new Utah Provo Mission President, John C Hodgman, will also be speaking.
The address of the stake center is 835 South 500 West.
Maybe I'll see you there.

I love visiting your blog and seeing the progress of this project. It fascinates me. From the webcam today it looks like there are two urn installed in addition to the fountain. One urn in the north planter and another in the far south planter. Is this the case from what you can see when you've visited?

I saw the north planter from the cam and am going to the site this morning. I hope to have pictures up by the end of the day today.
