I don't know about you, but I just love reading. Sometimes I spend more time planning, designing, and dreaming from resource books and the internet than actually doing the projects. I would like to share a listing of my small garden library reference books, magazines, movies and people that inspire me to do what I do. On top of the pile is an adorable, little journal that was given to me by my friend, Jennifer Hayslip of Eye Candy Creations.

He drilled 3/4 inch holes in the bottom of it for proper drainage. We placed a couple of coffee filters over the holes to stop the soil from falling through the bottom and filled with a nice mixture of high quality organic potting soil, compost and some sphagnum/peat moss. The mixture is nice, black and loamy. We then added the herbs: variegated oregano, lavender, rosemary, basil and lemon thyme. I have no idea if they will work well together, the project is an experiment. I also placed a beautiful glazed pot, that I had purchased from Anthropologie, on it's side for decoration.
