Do you like the look of old fashioned wraparound porches? Or, maybe a simpler screened in version? Have you ever taken a nap on a porch swing? Or drank iced tea on a glider? What if you don't have a large porch? What can you do to still have a nice outdoor environment?

You can outfit an apartment balcony strategically with just enough to create a very nice visiting or relaxing area. Can you fit a small bench? Or, a single chair and stool that can double as a chair when needed? Can you put up a trellis to add not only privacy but to shade the area with nice smelling, flowering vines? You may not have an old fashioned porch, but with a little ingenuity, you can turn any area you do have into a special place just for you.Honeysuckle is an easy to grow vine that will provide shade, beauty and a nice smelling flower. It can give a lot of bang for your buck in a small area. Find it in our plant nursery.
