It was absolutely beautiful weather today here in Baltimore. It’s early January yet somehow the temperature soared to 65 degrees. I quickly came down with a case of spring fever. My mind turned to Sherwood Gardens in the Guilford neighborhood.
Outside my front door the entrance to the Guilford neighborhood beckons. It’s one of Baltimore’s grandest neighborhoods and it’s the perfect place for a Spring walk
My preferred route is to stroll up Greenway. It’s not a road or avenue or boulevard, it’s simply “Greenway” and it’s one of the nicest streets in Baltimore.
Quiet paths and stately gates connect remarkable residences to the sleepy city street. It’s hard to believe we are in the middle of Baltimore City. The houses are beautiful too, I’m just not showing them here to protect my neighbors privacy.
Greenway is lined with Parisian style streetlights. At dusk when the lights illuminate it is magic. Throw in some fireflies and it’s a perfect evening.
Sherwood Gardens is located on Greenway. Created in the 1920’s and maintained by the Guilford Association, “More than six acres in size, Sherwood Gardens has no gates, fences or other barriers. The public may stroll at leisure through the grounds. There is no admission charge and a reservation is not required.” (Guilford Association Website) http://www.guilfordassociation.org/sherwood/
It is simply one of the loveliest places in Baltimore City, come spring the Tulip beds are a sight to be seen! When I walk there in the evenings, I often see young couples taking their engagements pictures among the tulips. The pictures in this post were taken last August one afternoon when I had the place to myself.
I am so grateful to have this resource walking distance from my home, I am always inspired by the plantings.
Here is where we’ll end our walk, a quiet bench under a shady tree. Come to Baltimore and take a walk up Greenway to Sherwood Gardens. You’ll be enchanted by the sights and astounded by the real estate. I’ll see you there.
