I  had an email this week from a reader who spotted two deer crossing Roland Avenue near Lake Avenue at about 10:30 at night. Only a few cars were on the street. Bright lights made the deer easy to spot as they crossed Roland and strolled into yards on the east side of the street.   She wrote trying to reach someone in the neighborhood association for that area. After emailing friends in north Roland Park, I learned these deer were not an unusual occurrence. One friend on St. George's Road said her munched-on garden is proof of their regular prowling.

When it comes to landscape architects' own gardens, some are like shoemakers' shoes -- untended. Their owners are too busy making other spaces beautiful. Not so with Catherine Mahan, founding partner of Mahan Rykiel; Stuart Ortel, principal and founder of Stone Hill Design; and Carol Macht, principal and founding partner of Hord Coplan Macht. These well-respected Baltimore landscape architects have created gorgeous home gardens. Each is an extension of the house and in keeping with its architecture.

The recent robbery of two women at the Roland Park Shopping Center created a media stir. Although I have lived in Roland Park most of my life, I am always surprised by how some occurrences that go with little mention in other neighborhoods create citywide attention if they happen in Roland Park.   Not that a robbery of two city restaurant-goers, one a senior citizen, should go unnoticed. If all robberies received the attention of the recent one in Roland Park, perhaps more criminals would be caught.

The problem: A damaged storm inlet remained uncovered in Roland Park for weeks. The backstory: John Rockefeller was worried about his neighbors. He first noticed a deep hole on Elmwood Road in Roland Park in mid-February, when the heavy snows forced him and others to walk instead of drive and to choose different routes to their destinations. "The reason it was noticeable was because of all the snow and not all the sidewalks being shoveled, one had to walk in the street in order to go about the neighborhood," Rockefeller said.

In a city starved for luxury flagship retail stores, consignment shops are the closest thing fashionistas have to getting the same haute couture looks worn by the world's rich and famous. Although the fashions might not always be current, they are always a fraction of the cost of clothes found in the shopping districts of New York, Paris, London and L.A. In Baltimore, the Roland Park neighborhood offers the greatest concentration of high-end consignment shops. "The Roland Park area is ideal for this industry," said Betsy Wendell, owner of Octavia Cross Keys, a women's boutique in North Baltimore.
