Skosky Family Dentistry’s display artist went for the flower theme to celebrate Mother’s Day. Good choice, because – in the spirit of of doing exactly what your mother desires on her day – my mother wants us to take her to a locally-owned nursery to pick out annuals as her gift.
She also loves an earth-toned ranch house teaming with blooms, and has done a wonderful job of transforming hers into exactly that. But she often wishes for just a little more square footage. In the “I Want To Go To There” world, this is what I’d give her on Mother’s Day…
This is my favorite house on the Ranch Side of St. Louis Hills, south of Francis Park. It faces the park, so when it was for sale a couple of years ago, I’d frequently walk around Francis Park just to gaze longingly at it and day dream. Happily, the folks who did buy it take immaculate care of it, but I keep hoping it will one day be mine, because dreaming is free.
That is a dandy, isn’t it?
I’ll bet they’d like to build a 20-foot fence between their house and their neighbor’s house on the East, if it’s the one I’m thinking of – – A fine dwelling done up so Ghastly that only The Hill could claim it.
Oh! Lovely! Also, an extremely well-tended lawn (keys the man who decided to ignore yardwork over the weekend at his own bungalow)…
