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