I’ve been remiss in finishing up my California travels! When last I posted on California we were in Venice, after that we headed up to Santa Monica. We were looking for a bookstore but when consulting an informational sign I saw the name Leaf & Petal Company (Plant Studio / Floral Arts) even though it was in the opposite direction of the bookstore with a name like that I had to check it out!
The anticipation was building as we waited to cross the street staring at this…My excitement quickly faded when we crossed and I saw they were closed. Even though we were within their posted hours of business they were closed. So frustrating! Looking through the gate only made things worse!
I wanted to touch these plants!
Naturally I had to walk around the entire building, in case there was an open door…no such luck. In the back, next to the Sears parking lot we found these plants just pushed up against the gate, out in the open where frankly anyone could have taken them. Call me naive but there is something so endearing about the trust factor that many nurseries have, I guess that applies even in LA! (no offense LA...just being a big city and all...)
