Parkie Pic of the Week

For those of you who live outside the area, University Park and Highland Park are together called Park Cities. Citizens of these fabled towns are called "Parkies". Hence, my weekly fun feature which I call "Parkie Pic of the Week" in which I like to highlight an unusual or spectacular feature of my neighborhood.

Now normally this is my "Friday Fun" feature. But I am posting it early this week, so enjoy:

This week's Parkie Pic of the Week isn't a house, but a tree. I pass by this house on my way to work every day and I am crazy about the tree in their yard. It looks like an octopus with all of its drooping branches. It's just begging to be climbed. One of these days, I just might have to do it. But not on a day when I am wearing a dress. Or stilettos.
