|I visited north Baltimore's Guilford neighborhood today, intent on photographing the famous tulip beds at Sherwood Gardens, where 80,000 tulips bloom annually. Alas, the tulips have yet to bloom, but this flowerbed brought a big smile to my face, as did the pint-sized bench with animal motif. I am only posting one photograph of the park, because I hope to return soon to take photos of it in its full glory. Stay tuned!|

|Though single family detached homes are the norm, Guilford also offers town homes, such as the beauties featured here. Great condominium buildings exist in the immediate vicinity of Guilford as well.|
Guilford's quiet streets make it ideal for bicyclists traveling to nearby Johns Hopkins University, Loyola University Maryland, Notre Dame University of Maryland, and nearby commercial amenities, as well as ....
