Judging from the crowds visiting the Maryland Home & Flower Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds, a similar turnout next weekend should push attendance over the 100,000 mark, show organizers said.That would top last year's record of 70,000 easily. The annual event has been held in the fairgrounds' Cow Palace and Exhibit Hall for one weekend only for the past four years.The 1996 show features 450 exhibitors -- mostly home improvement and landscaping contractors, florists, craftsmen, artists and educators -- and is "definitely better than in past years," said Brenda Spowart of Perry Hall.

Prepare for the British Invasion. This one, however, will be of the floral, not musical, variety. The nearly 200-year-old Philadelphia Flower Show runs March 2-10 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This year's theme is "Brilliant!" with exhibits focusing on the landscapes, culture and beauty of Great Britain. The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society , which sponsors the event, has teamed up with Britain's Royal Horticultural Society to bring British designers, experts and presentations to the show, including Mark Lane, the head gardener for Buckingham Palace.

There's still more to come when visitors finish touring the main building of the Maryland Home and Flower Show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium.This year, there will also be a separate exhibition hall nearby that is filled with craft booths to browse through at no extra cost."We're having three shows in one," said Jay Plummer, coordinator of the show for S & L Productions. "The craft show is something additional people will get to see for their money."Last year's show had just a small display of crafts, with no more than 30 booths which were in the same building with the home and garden displays.

Why is going someplace with you always such an adventure?" It was my daughter's lamentation, expressed at the age of 6, when we got terribly lost going to the Kennedy Center in Washington. It was during our ballet phase. She said it again last year when I took her to the Philadelphia Flower Show. We got terribly lost on the way home, and she huffed at me in too-familiar irritation. But I made the trip to Philadelphia for the flower show with confidence this year, my friend Lisette riding in the seat Jessie had understandably vacated.

FOR GARDENERS, it's a daily battle against Japanese beetles, weeds and unpredictable weather.The flower bud that seems days away from flowering suddenly pops open in the morning sun, reaching its full potential unexpectedly and leaving the gardener to search for another to take its place.That's the dilemma facing some members of Mount Airy Garden Club as they prepare for the club's first flower show in years. The event, "A Novel Idea," will be held Thursday at Mount Airy branch library.Hundreds of annual and perennial flowers are needed to fill arrangements.

"People come here to relax and for peace of mind," he said, referring to The Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens of Baltimore, which is hosting its annual Flower Show, a large display of brightly colored tulips and snow-white lilies, through Sunday.

Pity the poor mum. Once the symbol of Chinese royal houses, it has been reduced to a spot in the parking lot of big box stores. There is a place where chrysanthemums get the respect they deserve - the Baltimore Conservatory in Druid Hill Park where, until Nov. 15, mums will be the center of attention. All kinds of mums, from the giant football mums to the delicate spider mums to the humble garden mums. "Mums don't have the same status in the garden," agreed Kathryn Blom, who supervises the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and the Botanic Gardens.

The Philadelphia Flower Show is always a floral spectacle and a welcome respite from winter. But this year, it will likely mean more to its quarter-million visitors. Brought low by economic hard times and a winter that seems, as all winters do, to drag on and on, those who spend a day in the city's cavernous Convention Center next week should feel transported. Literally. The show is titled "Bella Italia," and designer Sam Lemheney is attempting to carry visitors to the majestic gardens of ancient Rome, the lush hills of the Tuscan countryside, the romantic waters of Venice and the artful flora of Florence.

Planning a flower show often spans an entire growing season.While the potential exhibits are growing in their garden beds, organizersdecide on a theme and establish the ground rules.Exhibitors don't just snip a few flowers from their back yards, stick them in a vase, add water and carry them to the exhibit hall.The Carroll Garden Club spent nearly a year choosing "Works of the Masters" as the theme for its evaluated standard flower show, which ran for two days last month at the Westminster Riding Club.
