Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Baltimore's Sherwood Gardens

On the north side of Baltimore among some swanky houses sits Sherwood Gardens.  It's known for its spring tulip displays.

[Joining Through My Lens}

Friday despite the fog three of us set out to enjoy the blossoms and then lunch.

The land was donated to the city by the owners of Sherwood House.  Read more of the history here.



It wasn't just tulips in bloom: dogwoods and azaleas were beautiful too,




















We were surprised to see this tree.  












My traveling companions: Carol and Lynn.



Some of the swanky houses.



We went to lunch at Cafe Hon, in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore.


Elvis greeted us at the hostess stand.






The food was good!
