Descanso Gardens

With each day I get better, I just want to grab every bit of nature that I can get my hands. I recently went to Descanso Gardens to do exactly what the name suggests - rest! My idea of rest is walking through paths filled with trees, looking at art and savoring every bite of a simple dish. When you wake up from the haze of an illness (or any kind of impairing disorder) the world feels brand new again.

It's called Sturt Haaga gallery and was actually the garage that belonged to the Boddy House (founder of Descanso Gardens and owner of the former Daily News). Can I just live here? descanso gardens theartmuse
