I'm neither a germ-a-phobe, neat freak or healthcare pro, but remember that your skin is your largest living organ. Drying off after bathing removes tons of dead skin cells and surface residue. Imagine brushing your teeth without washing out your toothbrush!

Opps, what I wanted to say is thanks for this insight into the less obvious beauty and history in LA. This eclectic, diverse and experimental town deserves a closer look in order to really understand it origins and attitudes. A look into all of LA's excentric inhabititants, architects and builders really pays off. Thanks again and lets see more below the surface exploration.

You hold on to it forever, and pass it on to your grandchildren! Better find a good, dedicated storage system that can accomodate future purchases, and keep it bug free.

Actually, Blandwagon, they do nicely in pots as long as they're not pot bound, and they get full sun. This way you can move them out of sight when they look ratty.

Descanso Gardens hosts a class given by Mount San Antonio's horticulture department. It's on a school calendar basis (fall and winter), community college prices, and for credit. Call Descanso Gardens, it's a lovely place to take a class.

in keeping with the gardening theme: the ringed planters are a great idea for planting "running" species of bamboo (ie: black bamboo) to contain their running.

I'm with Abbey- wrong colors, wrong heights, ify plant combinations, too crowded. In garden design it's summed up: The right plant in the right place.
