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.

So gosh, it's the first Parkie Pic of 2009! Can you believe it! Now, I am usually not a fan of mixing stone and brick. It can be done well. But it is usually done bad. This house is just passing. But I picked it to showcase this week because of the entrance.

I always appreciate a person who pays attention to the details. I am crazy about the "overgrown" flora look my Parkie Sister has going on here. I like a little mess in my garden. It's always nice to see a splash of color this time of year. Doesn't this doorway just invite you in?
