how does your garden grow

living in the city of chicago, and not exactly owning the biggest lot of land, i don't have the opportunity right now to have my own garden surrounded with rocks and wildflowers and all of that nature stuff. my little deck will hopefully harbor some new plants soon as long as it warms up a bit. the herbs i had started from seeds died over the weekend due to the drop in temps from 90 to 40 degrees in the span of a few hours (i'm going to blame the weather and not my wannabe-green thumb).

until i can get some new plants and figure out exactly how much i can fit into my space in the sun, the internets (and pinterest!) are providing some fantastic inspiration and ideas for growing. vertical? potted? lots of possibilities..

i actually just ordered this little guy from plaid pigeon the other day! 

this tile design by maruja fuentes is fantastic
