If you want to learn the history and habits of a Baltimore neighborhood, just spend part of a weekend on a community walking tour. Residents open their homes and gardens for a peek at what is normally locked and bolted. I am often startled by the sophistication and variety of what people cultivate in tight garden spaces. I also like the relativity I encounter here. These are personality gardens designed by people who tailor spaces for comfort and privacy. They understand the demands a Baltimore summer makes on city living and come up with some amazing responses.

The first time I watered my poinsettias a little black fly flew out. Should I be concerned? Fungus gnats often enter the home on new plants. Their larvae feed on organic material in potting soil, but also feed on roots. To break their life cycle, allow the poinsettias' potting soil to dry to a depth of about 1/2 inch in between waterings. Now that a gnat is loose in your house, follow this rule for all your other houseplants, too, so its eggs cannot hatch in another pot. I found a bag of old flour, and I'm afraid to use it for holiday baking.

When Paige Finley, a research specialist at the Johns Hopkins University's School of Medicine, moved into her rowhouse in the Medfield neighborhood in 2005, her backyard contained one shrub and her front was bare. But Finley had a vision for what she wanted. "I knew in my head I wanted it to be a little sanctuary," she says. So she set to work. "I made some drawings, and then I just made some spray paint and drew lines where I wanted the flower beds to be, and I started digging.

Someone once told me that home design and improvement projects should be fun. But if you've ever built a new house, tried to renovate a bathroom, landscaped the front yard or selected a paint color for the hallway, you know that projects around the house can be stressful. They shouldn't be. After spending much of my free time over the past 21/2 years fixing up my old house, I need to remind myself of that on a regular basis. So one of my New Year's resolutions is to keep the projects I am working on around the house fun. Sure, the wood floors underneath the wall-to-wall carpet I just had removed on the second floor look like someone splattered them with driveway tar, tried to ice-skate on them and then scorched random boards with a handheld torch, but I know it could be much, much worse.

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.

If gardeners are ever truly green, it is probably with envy, an emotion that commonly overtakes them when they see someone else's garden. That's never more true than on garden tours, when you pay for a ticket to see gardens that are nicer than yours. Home and garden tours clutter the calendar in late May and early June, when the weather might still be mild and the gardens are at their peak of color and freshness. Saturday and Sunday in Reservoir Hill, Charles Village and Annapolis' Murray Hill neighborhood, many "little gems" will be on display on self-guided walking tours.
