A street lined with villa homes in the Harford County community of Bulle Rock appears unremarkable, with exteriors that at a glance appear pretty much alike. It is only upon closer look that Bulle Rock residents' personalities shine through gardens, flags and lawn adornments. At Valerie Matricciani's villa home, the front yard is a botanical feast for the senses and, visitors soon realize, a mere taste of what's to come beyond the door. The walk leading to her home is lined with dwarf bushes, impatiens, large coleus plants and a gracefully blooming crepe myrtle.

Something about these chilly almost-autumn days makes us want to sip wine outdoors, watch a parade, browse a manicured garden, or, you know, get scared out of our wits. Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities in the region for all of the above. Here are a few: Maryland Autumn Glory Festival You might have been to Garrett County in summer to swim in Deep Creek Lake and in winter to ski at Wisp, but maybe you haven't yet experienced it in fall. The Autumn Glory festival is a good reason to travel to Western Maryland for leaf-peeping, craft shows, live music and parades.

What we know of what Mother Nature provides in the spring has come to us over years of watching for the emergence of spring flowers, the scampering of the squirrels, and the change in the songs of the birds. We like the idea of knowing when each sprout breaks through the cold earth of winter every green stick and flowering twig. Just getting whiff of the fresh perfume of the daffodils puts life into an otherwise dreary day! The love of flowers is universal. We saw Russian children in Moscow carrying handfuls of tulips in the month of May. In the South Seas, girls wear flowers in their hair and ropes of orchids around their necks.

Seeing the snapdragon display at the nursery center reminded me of when I was a child and I played with my grandmother's bright-colored snapdragons. While pretending to be a dragon-slaying knight in shining armor, I'd pick the blossoms and then pinch their bases to snap the "jaws" up and down. If my grandmother hadn't stopped me, I would have beheaded every snapdragon in her garden. But my grandmother was a clever caregiver, and knowing that I fearedbees, she warned me in a scolding tone to, "Watch out for thebees.

Fall isn't just for mums anymore. Those round mounds of yellow, rust or purple are a poor way to celebrate the luxurious Mid-Atlantic fall - and ease a gardener's itch to plant something. Now is the time to refresh decorative garden pots with a rich variety of color and hardiness that can carry their beauty beyond the first frost. "Fall is a missed opportunity," said Kerry Michaels, who writes about container gardening at about.com. "The plants are on sale; it lasts so much longer than a flower arrangement.

In a narrow hallway on a high shelf, a sign sits next to an intricate wreath of looped vines, feathers and dried flowers. “Flowers feed the soul,” it says.  That hallway divides the front and back rooms of Natural Gatherings, Rick and Jane Barger's shop on Main Street in Bel Air. For the Bargers, that message rings true.

When the Ravens signed veteran cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks last week after successful minicamp tryouts for both, it was viewed as even more unlikely that they'd make a serious run at Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers who had surprisingly been released by the Kansas City Chiefs. Looking to upgrade their cornerback depth, the Ravens had some conversations about adding Flowers, but ultimately others teams coveted the 28-year-old more. One of those teams, the San Diego Chargers, have agreed today to a one-year deal with Flowers, according to multiple reports.

The Full Flower Moon, the second after the vernal equinox, occurs Wednesday. The moment the moon is technically full, by astronomical standards, is 3:16 p.m. So by the time it rises at 8:15 p.m. in Baltimore, it will already be past full, though to the naked eye, it will still look full, of course. The full moon can help you spot Saturn this month, as the two move in tandem across the southern sky throughout the night. The ringed planet will appear just to the west of the moon.
