As she enters her 80s, Margaret Himes looks to her garden for solace. She started the expansive garden behind her house in the fall of 1967, just a few months after she, her husband and their three children moved into the new home in Joppatowne. Himes and her then-2-year-old daughter, Patty, planted tulips in the backyard that first autumn. When they came up the next spring, Patty asked if they could plant flowers every year. Patty, who suffered from a congenital heart ailment, died later that year, but Himes continued to work in the garden.

Amelia and Thorpe Staylor's suburban garden began about 15 years ago when the former bankers downsized from a 12½-acre property in Havre de Grace to a quarter-acre lot in Abingdon. The smaller space gave them new opportunities to focus on garden design, Amelia Staylor says. But first, they had to solve the problems of a steeply sloping backyard that was susceptible to erosion. Their solution was to create three outdoor rooms and position higher plants on the downward slope. They also "borrowed" the landscape of a wooded common area to provide a backdrop to their design.

As unusual as it sounds, Trisha Repsher was not looking for a repeat of last year's runner-up effort at the Run from the Lion's Den Invitational yesterday. That's because Repsher let first place slip from her grasp last season when she took a wrong turn on the 3.1-mile course at Liberty in Eldersburg and ended up finishing second. This time, the Westminster junior stayed on the right path and captured the individual title in a course-record time of 19 minutes, 14 seconds. Repsher's performance powered the Owls past No. 8 Winters Mill and No. 10 Mount Hebron to the team crown.

"I was this close," said Andrew Winfield, squeezing the thumb on his right hand within millimeters of his pointer finger. "Close enough to where it's been the only thing I think about at any given time or place." The South Carroll wrestler was referring to last year's 160-pound Class 4A-3A state runner-up finish to Richard Montgomery's Scott Church. Winfield is favored to redeem himself as The Sun's top-ranked 171-pounder with a 25-0 record entering this year's two-day event that begins Friday at the University of Maryland's Cole Field House.

With more than 2½ acres in Carroll County, Scott and Charlene Uhl faced the challenge of creating intimate gardens in an expansive space. But Charlene Uhl, the budget director at University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Scott Uhl, a retired state health department official who now spends time on investments, came up with a solution. Drawing inspiration from Winterthur, Longwood Gardens and Colonial Virginia plantations, they created a formal garden next to the house and added informal plantings of trees, shrubs and perennials away from the house.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Dallas Stewart did it again. A year ago, his horse, Golden Soul, finished second in the Kentucky Derby as a 34-1 underdog. On Saturday, the Kentucky-based trainer pulled off another second-place finish, this time with 38-1 underdog Commanding Curve. It wasn't exactly the result Stewart wanted. “I thought he had a heck of a shot,” he said. But he had to tip his cap to the winner, California Chrome, who exceeded his expectations. “I was just hoping California Chrome would kind of give in a little bit, but he didn't,” Stewart said.

A wreck of an old house has appeal for a special kind of couple, and like Sandi and John Kroh, winners of the first Baltimore Sun Historic Homes Contest, that is true of Jeff and Sharon Dillon. They are great fans of "This Old House" and took the opportunity on a trip through New England to visit a house that had been restored for the TV show. "I was thinking, 'We could do that,' " said Sharon. Her husband still wants to know what they were thinking when they bought the Hunt-Schmidt House in Phoenix almost 17 years ago. The efforts of the Dillons to restore the 1850s blacksmith's house earned them the runner-up spot in the contest.

Mike Smith appeared dazed in the moments after his horse, Bodemeister, was again beaten by Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another - this time by a neck in Saturday's Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course . The veteran jockey wore the frozen smile of a man hardly able to fathom what had just transpired. "I swear I don't know how he ran me down, man," Smith said after trainer Bob Baffert approached in the fading sunlight. "You did a good job," the 59-year-old trainer told the 46-year-old jockey, a fellow Hall of Famer and former Preakness winner who recently passed 5,000 career victories.
