As a newborn, Elyssa Baxter was brought home to her family's restored log house in McLean, Va. Seventy-two years later, not only would she and her husband own a similar restored log home in Parkton, but they would be invited to take part in the 77th annual Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage, whose 2014 theme is "extraordinary historic properties. " "This home carries on a family tradition and the interest of my mother and father to own and maintain a log cabin," said Baxter, a former art teacher.

In the usual course of life's events, most people go to school. Very few people, however, buy a schoolhouse and call it home. In the usual course of life's events, most people go to school. Very few people, however, buy a schoolhouse and call it home. "It's old and unusual, but wears its age so well," said Heather Wirth, who along with her husband, Steve Bogucki, purchased the circa-1888, two-room schoolhouse in Parkton on St. Patrick's Day 1990. "It's fun living in a building with a past that's had so many other uses - first as a school, then as a duplex, then as an antiques shop [and]

For 32 years after noted artist Grace Turnbull died in 1976, the house that she built in Guilford in 1928 sat empty, except for a few erstwhile renters - and some squirrels in the roof. Then, in 2008, manufacturing executive Douglas Hamilton III and his wife, Angela, a procurement manager, bought the six-bedroom, five-bath Spanish Colonial with Bermuda influences, in the 200 block of Chancery Road. But the Hamiltons didn't move in until December 2011, because the house, though uniquely artistic, was antiquated, poorly laid out and in ill repair.

They might be museums. The two Bolton Hill houses are dignified enough, and the most finicky curator would be happy to snap up such fine chandeliers and marble fireplace mantels. The rugs are Persian, the prints by Audubon and the atmosphere genteel enough that one is tempted to speak in hushed tones.Relax. Although the Gamse and Woltereck homes are featured on the Bolton Hill walking tour segment of this year's Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage, neither is a shrine to bygone elegance.

Nothing says winter is really, really over better than the sight and scent of daffodils, geraniums, daisies, petunias and ever-hardy marigolds.Maybe spring is discovering a beautiful new flower to grace your garden. Or maybe spring means the annual trip to the store to purchase potted plants for displaying on decks, balconies and patios.However you cut it, flowers and plants add a lot to our lives, particularly during this time of year, as we shake off the winter blues. This is the season to check out what is out there, see how others are decorating with flowers, choose how to plant your garden or decide on a landscape design.

In recent years, the pleasures visitors have gotten from Baltimore's premiershow house and Maryland's largest house tour have been very different. The Symphony Decorators' Show House (opening next Sunday) traditionally offers glamour and fantasy, while the Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage (which starts April 27) features private homes with "real" interior design.This year is a little different. The decorators' show house, Stratford on the Green in Guilford, is unusual because it's so large and the rooms are so small.

A winding road narrows in St. Mary's County toward the tip of a peninsula. Here, a partially hidden entrance with a sign that reads "St. Marie's" heralds the home of Loretta "Tiny" and Francis Taylor. It is an enchanted, short ride up the driveway, which is bounded on both sides by verdant lawns, toward the main Georgian-style house. Against its white siding and three tall columns of its portico, myriad flowers and blossoming trees burst forth in colors both pale and bold. A brick walk leads to the home's front door, providing the first, brief glance of water before entering the interior foyer.

From the dentils that punctuate the roofline to the wide staircase leading upstairs, the home of Gretchen and A. Denis Clift is a classic. And it's in an Annapolis community where architecture is distinctive, gardens are gracious and century-old trees shade winding streets. The house offers views of the Severn River through original windows of rippled glass and looks over sections of Wardour. Even though the neighborhood is in the city of Annapolis, it feels anything but urban.

THE STRUCTURES are as grand in appearance as they are rich in history. And the family names behind them resemble a roster of prominent old-line Harford County families: Hess. Voss. Keene. These striking residences - and the stories behind them and their occupants - will open Saturday to visitors with an appetite for architecture, history and the lifestyles of the well-to-do. Several sprawling homes, many with opulent gardens, in rural Harford and northern Baltimore counties make up the final leg of the Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage 2005, a statewide event that began last month with a walking tour of historical sites in Chestertown in Kent County.
