The Snyder family considers itself pretty good at "whipping restaurants back into shape. " They've done it several times in recent years when flooding caused temporary closures of the family's Snyder's Willow Grove restaurant, and they're planning to do it when they reopen late next month. But when Snyder's Willow Grove opens this time, it won't be at the familiar Hammonds Ferry Road location in Linthicum Heights but at a new one about a mile and a half away. "The family doesn't want to give up the restaurant business," said manager Kim Snyder, daughter of owner Vernon Snyder.

Old Town Laurel's oldest resident, one who stood silent witness to the birth of our country, the creation of our town and the growth of the modern world, has died. On Nov. 18, the 250-year-old champion willow oak, located at Park Place on Talbott Avenue between Seventh and Eighth streets, succumbed to the rigors of that long life and the stresses of the 21st century, and fell to the saw. Once, it was just one of many large trees that made up the oak grove that dominated that section of Laurel, and from which the city's historically black neighborhood, the Grove, took its name.

Ryan Perlberg's mark on Fells Point continues to grow at a rapid rate. On July 13, after three months of preparation, the Stuggy's and Rye co-owner opened Willow, his third establishment in the popular Baltimore neighborhood. Willow is a Latin-fusion lounge focusing on Rye mixologist Doug Atwell and Julia Momose's hand-crafted cocktails and Stuggy's chef Benjamin Poison's take on Mexican food. If Perlberg's expansion resembles a corner of a "Monopoly" board - Stuggy's, Rye and Willow are all next to each other on South Broadway - it was not by design, he says.

Willow manages to be a lot of things all at once. The Fells Point restaurant, opened in July by the team behind RYE and Stuggy's, shares its name with the graceful weeping willow tree. With gray walls, hanging lanterns and gauzy curtains, Willow's interior is in sync with the moody look of its namesake. The space - like the staff - is casual but stylish. Willow's menu, on the other hand, is full of fresh takes on Tex-Mex and bar-friendly pizzas and burgers. Flavors occasionally veer into sophisticated territory, but overall, the food is straightforward, fun and approachable.

Willow, a new Latin-fusion lounge and bar in Fells Point, aims to dazzle. The elegant, dimly lit upstairs is lined with plush seating, including two large leather couches in its center. Downstairs, a back lounge and front-of-the-house seating area play bookends to the striking, triangular-shaped bar. A large, vintage-looking chandelier anchors the layout. The immaculate liquor bottle display makes quite a centerpiece behind the bar. The spare backlighting draws you in, and the three rows of mid- to top-shelf liquors are presented like trophies.

"The Willow Tree," Hubert Selby Jr. Marion Boyars. 288 pages. $25.95.In his late teens, having left the merchant marines because of tuberculosis, Hubert Selby Jr. needed a new career. According his Webpage he decided, "I knew the alphabet. Maybe I could become a writer."He has got the alphabet down. But it is a shame that after four novels and a collection of short stories, he still has not mastered punctuation or syntax. Perhaps he found neither particularly important for a novel meant to be written in dialect like his latest, "The Willow Tree."

So close and yet so far.Around the Beltway's many miles, no restaurant may be closer to the roadway than Snyder's Willow Grove, a pebble's skip off I-695 on Hammonds Ferry Road on the south side of town.Yet, in years of driving around the road with no end, neither I nor my husband had ever stopped at Snyder's -- until a recent Sunday when we went there with our two daughters.What we found surprised us. This is a fine, old Baltimore restaurant that cooks with respect for traditional methods, serves with a touch of hominess and generally lets you relax.

There will be no more wedding receptions, birthday dinners or high school reunions at Snyder's Willow Grove. For 77 years, the Linthicum Heights restaurant and banquet hall hosted countless family and community celebrations and special dinners.

For Mother's Day, co-owner Vernon Snyder was preparing to serve 1,200 customers, a healthy crowd on one of the restaurant's busiest days of the year.

Each year, robins, daffodils, and tax forms signal that we've turned a corner on winter. But when the mink-on-a-stick catkins of pussy willow (Salix caprea) swell and a pale green haze veils the cascading `hair' of weeping willow (S. babylonica), you know that spring can't be far behind. Yet in addition to advertising spring's coming attractions, willows offer - depending on variety - year-round charms. Some have bright-hued stems that add spectacular color to the winter landscape. Some, like weeping golden willow (S. alba `Tristis')

After working 32 years in the U.S. diplomatic corps, Tom and Madeline Wajda were looking to retire, but instead bought a farm in southern Pennsylvania and found a new business in the field of purple. Lavender, that is — and lots of it. So much that the couple created a festival in 2001 to celebrate the crop. Back then, a few hundred people showed up, but this year's Pennsylvania Lavender Festival, which begins Friday, is expected to draw 3,000 visitors for lectures, tours and weed walks.
