Your local nursery

When looking to bring a little life into your abode, why not think literally? Plants give oxygen. Oxygen keeps us alive.  Instead of grabbing a little potted plant at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, wander over to your local nursery--where plants actually GROW!

It's an amazing feeling to walk around a nursery, especially if you live in a concrete jungle. I wandered over to a place called Boething Treeland Nursery, right next to Hidden Hills (western edge of the San Fernando Valley). To walk between rows upon rows of roses...it is truly enchanting! 

Hybrid Tea Roses are the easiest to grow in the Los Angeles climate, and give off the most scent!

Scent Rx: "Mr. Lincoln" roses smell the best. Go grab a few.
