The challenge was to design a garden that evoked the familiar phrase “Color my world.” It sounds simple - gardens are nothing if not colorful. Carroll Landscaping owner Robert Jones and his designer, Beth Burnham, of Baltimore County chose the color green. Then they turned the challenge inside out. “We like thinking a little bit outside of the box,” says Burnham with a shy smile. Their garden would not be green as in “shades of.” It would be green as in recycled, reclaimed and repurposed - a sustainable garden.

The brightest idea in gardening right now doesn't come in a seed packet, but out of a can of paint. People are splashing a coat of Chinese red on the garden gate, painting the tool shed mustard yellow and tinting their terra-cotta pots a dusky blue. Bright paint on walls, fences, arbors, benches and flowerpots wakes up the garden and gives gardeners a new way to work with colors. Roses and daisies blooming in front of a wall painted to complement them absolutely glow. Painted surfaces also have a way of making a garden more cozy and domestic, just as color establishes a pleasant mood indoors.

An attorney hired by the Annapolis law office has declared that Alderman Carl O. Snowden -- a front-runner in the race for mayor this year -- remains a legal resident of Ward 5, the district he was elected to represent in 1993.David M. Funk, a Baltimore attorney, wrote in a nonbinding opinion: "If Alderman Snowden's residency qualifications were challenged, based on the relevant facts known to us and recited in this opinion, we believe that he would likely prevail."Snowden requested the legal opinion after The Sun reported that it is unclear whether he lives in a rowhouse in Ward 5 or in a $96,000 home he owns in Ward 4."

Sometimes the most popular items in the home originate in the past and get reinvented for the present. The ironworks found everywhere today are a perfect example: An old art form is being updated in contemporary ways.Several years ago, I saved from a turn-of-the-century New York building an enormous but delicate window grill that my father used as a garden gate. Today, however, finding an iron garden gate -- or a table, wall, mirror, bed, wine rack, pair of candlesticks, clock, chandelier or other such pieces -- is as easy as going to a home store, browsing through a catalog or choosing among the recent profusion of iron artists and companies.

Steppingstones are for shortcuts, for little hops between one part of a garden and another. They are for making your way into a flowerbed to plant or weed. They may take you to secret places -- through the shrubbery to the spigot or a potting bench, or to a shady spot where a hammock awaits. A few steppingstones leading off the patio into the lawn create movement, carrying not only your feet but your eye into the garden, one step at a time. Of course, steppingstones also keep your feet dry, prevent you from stepping on your plants and reduce soil compaction.

I'VE BEEN having fun in my garden, much to my surprise. My garden is part of a community garden near the corner of Lombard and Wolfe streets. The garden gate is made out of two wooden doors that have been refinished and lettered in both Spanish and English. "Upper Fells Point Community Garden," it reads. All around both doors are painted bright tomatoes and eggplants and carrots. There are roughly a dozen plots in the garden. I inherited the space from a friend last spring who was reluctant to give up her garden, yet did not have the time to devote to it. My first city garden was beautiful with everything that grew the previous year and decided to return.

We harvested our first crop from the garden last week. It was a cucumber. While a single cucumber is not something that would excite the Luther Burbanks of the gardening world, its arrival gave my 8-year-old son a thrill.Concealing his prize as he carried it into the house, the kid waited for the appropriate moment and presented the cucumber to his mother who reacted with the correct amount of astonishment. The harvesting of the cucumber was a highlight in what has been an up-and-down gardening experience for my son and me.Ours is not a backyard garden that you can wander out to in your bare feet and tend to after supper.

Practical or frivolous, a simple arch over a garden gate or an elaborate tunnel to nowhere in particular, the arbor has had a role in the garden for centuries. Arbors frame views, define spaces, give a garden a vertical lift and play endless tricks with light and shadows. They add structure to the landscape, merge art and nature, and showcase the gardener's individual style.The forms of arbors are many. They may be flat-topped or arched, rustic or urbane, exotic or thoroughly home-grown, broad enough for a bench or not much wider than a wheelbarrow.
