This post is a belated thank-you to Thyme in the Garden for doing an amazing job with our studio's stone patio.  Previously, an old boxwood hedge surrounded the patio.  If the light was right, I was able to get a few photos there, but usually I avoided the area because the boxwoods looked so tired and unappealing.

To the Rescue!  Thyme in the Garden answered my request for help this last spring.  They brought in beautiful stones salvaged from a farmer's old stone wall and then Debby and Robyn pulled the look together with perennials, grasses, and a few annuals.  The look is stunning.

Here are some before, during, and after photos, including a few from one of my fall senior sessions.

It is such a joy to be able to photograph in my new patio portrait garden!  Here is a CCHS senior sitting on one of our new rocks, perfectly sized for portraits.
