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.

This house is an interesting one for me. If you look at the house itself, there's nothing that immediately pops out at you. But if you slow down and look closer, you'll notice the weathered metal overhand over the front door. No shutters. An interesting sculpture to the left of the door. The unusual bamboo "hedge" along the front curb. And then your eye travels down the wall... the gigantic boulder that they have built into the wall. So amazing! And the rusted metal door entering the backyard. I also like the doggie window at the bottom of the door. I think it's nice to let the dogs look out and see what's happening throughout the day. The boulder is what makes this house unique and my pick of the week.
