This month, host Jeanette Trompeter will take you to places that are anything but dull. Relax under swaying palm trees in Jamaica, stroll along the gorgeous beaches of Miami, and sample some fresh fruits and vegetables at San Francisco's famous Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market.

Shooting Galleries

Ready, aim, fire up a blank wall with focal-point photo displays. Even amateur snapshots can look like fine art when you surround them with big mats and paint the walls to become part of the picture.

Dress Up Closet Doors

Though closet doors may hide a multitude of sins, they don't have to be unsightly or uninspiring. Whether flat or paneled, ordinary bifold doors perk up with the help of simple embellishments. A little paint, fabric, and wood trim are all you need to transform doors-that-bore into movable style statements that reveal your good taste while concealing your clutter.

School Choice

Just as consumers comparison shop for everything from the lowest interest rates to the best long-distance plans, it should come as no surprise that parents are increasingly shopping around for the best schools for their children. But they no longer have to look only to the private sector for choice. Charter schools, magnet schools, and open enrollment policies are giving parents choices among schools, while staying within the public school system. A neighborhood school is not the only public option anymore. Parents now have more information about school performance, and can pick accordingly.

Make blank walls bloom

Somewhere in your yard there's a stretch of wall that needs more than a coat of paint to light up and shine. Between the bathroom window and the chimney? The side of the garage? Whatever the location, the problem is the same-- expanse of blankness. In the Better Homes and Gardens Test Garden, we've filled in the blanks with flowering vines, such as clematis Nelly Moser (above). They cover big spaces, they're graceful, and, best of all, they bloom. But when a wall needs repair or repainting, vines get in the way.

Top 10 easy roses

Bad luck with roses? Maybe it's not you. Maybe it's the roses. If you grow old-- and tough-as-nails old-fashioned-- roses, however, you can just about plant them and forget them. The only thing you do have to do is stand back to give them room to flower.

Better than brand new

Like many cottages of the 1920s, this Southern California beach house was a tight fit even for a family of four. Measuring just 1,097 square feet, its interior contained dark, tiny rooms that made the house feel smaller still. But current owner Sandi Zarcades fell in love with its dollhouse charm. "I love the simplicity of it," she says. To preserve the charm yet put the house in sync with her lifestyle, Sandi consulted architect Jim Kelley and interior designer Laura Birns. Their scheme offers savvy tips for making any small house live large.
