If you are looking for a group of people that have an appreciation and deep love for the beauty of Howard County farmland, you need not look any further than the Mullinix family. I sit with my father on our front porch in Dayton every season as we're both rendered speechless by the beautiful sunset before us. At these moments I can't imagine anyone being so lucky, so fortunate as to enjoy this amazement. From our front porch I sit in awe of property that my family has owned for as long as I have lived.

By Preakness Saturday, every last Christmas tree pine needle has to be out of my house. I also have to cut my first rose of the season. It's also the day when the winter rugs must disappear down into my cellar. I live by a Baltimore calendar wherein the Christmas holiday season, late winter and a cool, wet spring have a way of mushing together. By mid-May, it's time for a change. I make the time to clean, tear up the house and find the last holiday light bulbs that might have rolled under the sofa.

Marsha and John Wise bought their home six years ago after losing out on another house in the same neighborhood because they had not made an offer quickly enough. The couple had fallen in love with the community of Hunting Ridge, a historic district near Baltimore's western edge known for solid homes in varied architectural styles amid huge trees and rolling terrain. They really wanted to live there - enough to write to community leaders, inquiring if they knew any homeowners in their midst who would be interested in selling.
