I showed up at the door of a Greenway home I've admired for years. Charles B. Reeves — who goes by "Sprat" — greeted me with his enthusiastic welcome: "Delighted. " For the next 90 minutes I tried to take notes about his version of the history of North Baltimore's Guilford. "I was born in 1923. Huzzah!" said the neighborhood patriarch. I posed a few questions about Guilford's centennial, an event that is being celebrated Sunday with a house and garden tour. Who else but this retired Venable attorney, fox hunter and Austrian skier could tell me where the bodies were buried?

A trip to Sherwood Gardens is a spring ritual worth repeating. I've been going there all my life, and it never gets old. If anything, on a recent warm evening, nearing nightfall, it seemed fresh, fertilized and healthy. The place was full of families who were there for the same reason I was. It was a chance to take in the glories of a Maryland spring. I am not sure I would want to be surrounded by all those pinks, purples and yellows year-round. But in April, after what we endured in February, give me all those tulip beds, flowering trees and shrubs.

"This started a year ago," Ann Giroux said, surrounded by gift bags and silent auction items in her Greenway mansion with its tulip-lined walkway overlooking Sherwood Gardens. Giroux was referring to the planning for the Champagne and Tulips Gala on Saturday, May 10, a $200-a-ticket, black-tie fundraiser for the gardens, one of Baltimore's biggest seasonal tourist attractions. But she could just as easily have been referring to Guilford's ambitious centennial celebration that began last year.
