HOUSTON – When Susan Farb Morris was driving home from an appointment Tuesday afternoon at the Texas Medical Center, she spotted a house with something special that brought her a big smile.
Taking a U-Turn at the corner of Greenbriar and Main, she stopped at a house with three dancing bear-shaped topiaries wearing face masks, showing appreciation for all the medical workers fighting through the coronavirus pandemic. She thought it would be worthy for a picture, and sing “Bare Necessities.”
Morris wondered who the owners of the house were, but she passes by the area each time finding a different decoration on the three bears.
“They’ve been there for years and often have different themes, depending on holidays,” said Morris. “I’ve seen Christmas decorations and Easter baskets, for instance.”
A Facebook friend says a newer family may have moved into the house a few years back and kept the tradition alive. Other friends said they do remember seeing these bear-shaped topiaries while passing by.
“I love those bears,” said Mara Segal Van Norstrand in a comment. “When my kids were little they always asked me to drive by them to see what they were wearing.”
