  • The GRASS Regimen

    I couldn't help but notice that a PA colleague of mine had a beautiful display on her medical suite counter.  No frilly flowers or fancy vases.  This was a simple, yet chic, display of a vibrantly modern grass.  Yes, you read correctly. Grass. Not only did this look pretty, it was pure genius. I soon learned from her that ...
