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. Okay... just look at the scale of this tree. This was right next door to the Secret Garden gate I profiled two weeks ago. I mean, the size and magnitude of this tree is staggering to me. It dwarfs the mansion next to it - and it's a big house. Probably at least 5,000 sq. feet. Impressive.
