    1. That trellis is taller than me....I think it loves where it's planted because I don't have to do anything to it until mid summer, then it needs a little water if it's dry. You could grow one on your balcony and let it drape down. It would be like Jack's bean stalk! haha.

  5. So so beautiful, Betsy. I have tried a couple of times to grow them, but not had much luck...but haven't tried since we've been in this house. Maybe I should give it another go and see what happens. Your trellis is really pretty also...love the top of it, especially. :)

    1. I think you should try again! This one was under $5 at Lowes a few years ago. It likes water and shade, so maybe you can find a good spot for it!
