New York-born Harvey S. Ladew was a wealthy, cosmopolitan bon vivant and sporting gentleman whose greatest pleasures in life were gardening, traveling and riding to the hounds. In 1929, Ladew purchased a 250-acre farm in rural Harford County, near the Elkridge-Harford Hunt Club in Monkton, where he delighted in racing his ponies and entertaining such renowned guests as Cole Porter, Lawrence of Arabia and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Over the next decade, Ladew added several new wings to the original farmhouse and created a 22-acre garden devoted to cultivating the fantastically sculpted ornamental shrubs for which the Ladew Topiary Gardens are famous today.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A chemistry professor is shot to death by the gates of his university. A well-known singer of songs praising Saddam Hussein is gunned down outside his home. The mother of a young woman involved in a bitter divorce is killed in her driveway. Killers are roaming the streets of this city, and no one is pursuing them in what has become open season for settling old scores. For anyone bitter at his treatment by a former government official, a boss, even a family member, this has become the best of all times for carrying out dreams of revenge.

When the King of Jordan talks like a stooge of Saddam, you are not supposed to take him at face value. Ditto when he talks like a statesman.Too bad the shrubbery thieves of North Baltimore County won't tackle the poison ivy.

Ladew Topiary Gardens, often lauded as one of the finest examples of topiary in the United States, is celebrating its 23rd year as an extraordinary public attraction in Harford County.Much of the 22 acres of quiet gardens and sculpted hedges appears unchanged from the days since country gentleman Harvey Ladew single-handedly crafted the yews and hemlocks into a potpourri of remarkable shapes and figures in the 1930s. His former manor house now includes a gift shop, but is still chockablock with the mementos and eclectic collections of hunting art and English countryside furnishings.

With plans ranging from reducing the number of vacant buildings to fixing broken water fountains to sprucing up city shrubbery, former Gov. William Donald Schaefer began a series of meetings yesterday aiming to turn around what he called "a general feeling of hopelessness" in Baltimore.Mr. Schaefer, Baltimore's mayor from 1971 to 1987, met over breakfast at the Center Club with about a dozen former and current business leaders he invited in an Aug. 16 letter."In recent years the city has stopped its forward movement," Mr. Schaefer wrote.

Hedge funds and I go way back. When I was a kid I got paid$1.25 every time I trimmed a neighbor's hedge. I squirreled the money away and tapped the hedge fund whenever I wanted to buy myself a small treat. Squirreling away money is a practice I have continued over the years, even though I often end up paying myself for yard work.So when I saw the "Hedge funds send stocks plummeting" headline about John Meriwether's hedge fund losing billions and threatening the collapse of world credit markets, my first thought was, "Man, that guy must be up to his neck in shrubbery."

THE COMPLEX corner of Bellona Avenue and North Charles Street is a holy place.This is where cynical drivers instantly get religion upon safe passage through what is generally known around Lutherville as the intersection from hell.Last week, a midsize car lay on its hood after a horrid rush-hour accident at the intersection that also gives access to Nightingale Way. Baltimore County police, reacting to the backup of nearly 100 cars in all directions, closed the ramp leading from Bellona to the outer loop of Interstate 695, causing even greater tension.

The cowboys who sang "Don't fence me in" never imagined what it would be like to live in 1999 suburbia.Cars whizzing down the street, neighbors peeking into your yard, dogs roaming and kids rambling. Nowadays, being fenced in -- or fenced out -- makes a lot of sense.For many people, the fence of choice is a "living wall" of fast-growing, easily maintained shrubbery sheared into a hedge. When properly planted and maintained, these green fences control noise, ensure privacy and serve as barriers to people, bicycles and dogs.

Slopes, be they gentle or steep, may not delight gardeners -- at first. Even slight slopes often prove inhospitable to grass, and if grass does manage to grow, steep slopes are too difficult to mow,But there are alternatives, ones that will avoid the problem of sowing grass seed each fall only to see it perish the next summer because the young grass could not get enough water while getting established.One alternative is sod. Because the grass already has roots, it has a better chance of getting established on slopes not too steep to handle with a mower.

The den is a sunny room, made sunnier now by pale-yellow paint. The people who repainted the room have just passed being newlyweds. The new husband moved into the house little more than a year ago. The wife has lived there practically forever. The yellow room used to be her den. Now it is their den.It's a strictly work-related kind of den, since both the husband and wife are academics and writers. Today's icy January sunlight glints off the plexiglass computer-disk box, angles across the vast desk top, gleams rosily in the polished wooden bookcases that cover two walls with books, and forms prisms in the latticed glass windows of the tall semi-antique secretary.

Havre de Grace. -- Suburban neurosis seems to be reaching epidemic proportions. The latest victim out our way was Melanie Moore, a homeowner in the Fallston area who was stunned to discover the corpse of a deer in her shrubbery.There was no sign of foul play, and experts ascribed the death to natural causes -- as though there were anything natural about a dead animal in the back yard. Even in Baltimore everyone knows that dead bodies in back yards aren't natural, except maybe for human ones.
