Carolina Estates is an assisted living facility at 4424 Old Battleground Avenue. The above sculpture, located at the entrance, is what we in North Carolina call a "Mayberry moment." This could be Opey with a couple of friends sneaking down to the fishing hole, only to have Andy squeeze a confession out of them after a misadventure. It is little details like this nostalgic sculpture, and all of the great landscaping surrounding it, that earned this facility a landscape award from Greensboro Beautiful.
Greensboro Beautiful is a non-profit organization that works to conserve and enhance the the beauty and ecology of our area. They collaborate with the City of Greensboro. In addition to their own projects, Greensboro Beautiful acknowledges efforts of businesses to keep Greensboro "green." Nice landscaping is not something that directly helps with the bottom line. For Carolina Estates to take the extra effort to landscape is impressive. For Greensboro Beautiful to notice is equally impressive. Happy Skywatch Friday, dear readers. Wherever you live, may your weekend be filled with Mayberry moments like the one captured in the above sculpture. (Listen here).
