I visited the Rose Story Farm on Saturday with my mom. What a gorgeous place in Carpinteria, CA. I first heard about the farm in the March 2009 issue of Martha Stewart Living and I marked it down on my calendar as a must see this year. The scent alone was worth the two hour drive! This family run farm specializes in fragrant, romantic roses in all shapes and sizes. Walking amongst their blooms really raised my spirits and has inspired me to get back outside into my tiny little garden. I may also have to head to the flower market tomorrow to find some old fashioned garden roses for a bouquet. It really is all about that beautiful scent, don't you think? Thank you Rose Story Farm for reminding me!
