When Sandy Finley needed gifts for colleagues recently, a store-bought picture frame simply wouldn't do. Instead, she whipped up a little something in pink and black, using a product originally made to keep ammunition cases dry during World War II. "I used patterned duct tape that went with their personalities," says the 45-year-old special-needs high school teacher. And when a ripped swivel stool cried out for a new life, the Harford County resident knew what to do: add turquoise with purple squares and white sunbursts.

Coming out of the snowiest Maryland winter on record, thousands of Marylanders got a jump-start on spring at the Maryland Home & Garden Show where tulips, daffodils and pansies were in full bloom. Last month's blizzard inspired McCarroll Nole of Baltimore to attend the annual show on Sunday for the first time. "We are tired of the white stuff. We want to see some green. We want to see something come out of the ground," said Nole, who brought a camera with him to record ideas for sprucing up his flower garden.

There is nothing like a home and garden show to make you want to start from scratch on your own home and garden, and the 27th Maryland Home & Garden Show this weekend at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium is no exception. "I wish I'd thought of that." "Honey, we should think about doing that." And "Can I have your card?" will be the catchphrases at the Cow Palace until the show closes at 6 tomorrow night and we are all left with only our daydreams. There are more than 500 exhibitors in more than 160,000 square feet, and that's a lot of ground to cover.

THE COMMUNITY spirit in Taneytown is contagious these days. It seems that not too many weekends go by without the city or one of its community groups sponsoring a festival, cleanup or other function or celebration.Beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, the town's economic council will sponsor the Home and Garden Show. Begun last year as the Plant and Flower Mart with 12 vendors, the event's purpose is for people to visit Taneytown, leave their cares behind and enjoy a day at the park -- and in the process learn what a good place Taneytown is, according to Pam Harlow and Melissa Harris, co-chairs of the event.

Harbinger of spring, the Maryland Home and Garden Show has once again taken over the Timonium Fairgrounds. A highlight of the show, for me, is always the group of live display gardens featuring flowering bulbs, perennials, and shrubs, stone patios and walkways, outdoor kitchens, pergolas, arbors, and water features. Each year, I visit the show in advance of the opening to evaluate the gardens and to present a special Chesapeake Home + Living Landscape Award. Since the magazine has been presenting this award for 10 years, I know most of the landscapers who are competing, so I recuse myself from judging, and instead hit up a couple of local experts to pick our winner.

When the bottom fell out of the home construction market two years ago, it took Kevin Hurst, who built them, and his wife Tracy, who wrote loans for them, down with it. The Annapolis family, including 7-year-old twins, had to move into what had been Hurst's business offices. Hurst then turned to building houses for a different type of clients. Birds. A perfectionist who promised buyers of his custom designs only that he would be slow, he returned to his wood-working shop where he could execute that attention to detail on whimsical, magical – and expensive - birdhouses that can now be found in as many homes as gardens.

At just the moment when we think we can't endure another day, let alone another month, of cold weather, it is home-and-garden-show season. For the price of a ticket, we are drawn into warm, moist, sweet-smelling and cavernous buildings where, surrounded by blooming gardens, we can pretend summer has arrived. Double your pleasure this weekend with the opening of both the Philadelphia Flower Show - the granddaddy of them all - at the Philadelphia Convention Center and the Maryland Home & Garden Show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium.
