My honey's work is in a John Deere ad!

Want to see inside one of America's coolest secret fancypants eco-gardens? The one where my sweetie, Jefferson Jay Hubbell, has been doing artisan brick + stonework projects over the last couple of years?

Check out this beautifully shot ad by skate/film celebrity Stacy Peralta, part of a new series of John Deere commercials. Starring The Shop Tart's new monthly garden columnist (and horticulture celeb/leading crinum lily nursery owner), Jenks Farmer*.

View it here:

See that curving antique brick path at the end of the video? (pictured here) Jay made that!

Make sure you scroll down on the JohnDeere page to watch the ad featuring Bishopville, SC topiary artist Pearl Fryar, the subject of the doc film A Man Named Pearl. I am dying to watch it and can't wait to visit his property sometime soon!

*Jenks is speaking at the SC Master Gardeners conference on March 18; they've extended registration through the end of this week if you are in the Midlands and want to attend.

  1. Hello. I blog hopped here from The Shop Tart whose blog I discovered while reading the paper this morning. It's fun to find Columbia bloggers. My blog is all about crafty sewing and machine embroidery. Hope you'll stop by sometime. -- michele
