Growing Up Crescent

Growing Up Crescent - While at ‪#‎garden2grow‬ ‪#‎mossmountainfarm‬ with P. Allen Smith 25 social media influencers took a few minutes to learn about Crescent Garden planters and the history behind them from Crescent's owner Paula Douer. They then were able to go back in time and pretend to be 7 year olds to compete in creating miniature gardens in a Crescent Garden Juno planter. The result was lots of laughter and a little bit magical.

Miniature garden furniture came from Fairy Homes and Gardens, potting soil was provided by Good Dirt, plants are Proven Winners plants, those fabulous planters are from Crescent Garden, and the vibrant personalities of the folks pictured are all their own.

A Year of Gardens - Day 26

A summer visit at JJ DeSousa's home in Portland 2014. Viva de colores. I think that is French, or Italian, or just some language I mangled where I'm trying to say, "Look at all this great color!!"
Jj De Sousa, a Portland designer, lives life in color.
