As we approach summer’s unofficial start, we’ve been inspired by botanical desserts, wildflower bouquets and a coveted LA garden store’s new westside space.
Above: Heading to LA’s westside this weekend: Potted, a longtime Atwater Village garden shop. Owners Annette Goliti Gutierre and Mary Gray will lend their vibrant, colorful inventory to the housewares retailer Lazybones. Photo courtesy of Potted.
Above: As the temperatures rise, we’ll be turning to Christine Chitnis’ new book Icy, Cream, Healthy, Sweet, a collection recipes for frozen treats that incorporate seasonal herbs, fruits and vegetables. Photo courtesy of Christine Chitnis.
