Lingering Look at Architecture: Green

Dawn of “The Day After” runs a monthly architecture challenge as well as her windows. March is the month for Green.

Key West, Florida

Hemingway’s House
A ‘Green’ House
Shutters Galore
More Shutters
Cool Verandah

The ‘classic’ Key West style of housing seems to be weather-board, shutters, balconies and fabulous wraparound verandahs open to the elements. There is a distinct tropical feel about them and I could picture myself sitting in one of those Adirondack chairs, sipping a mint julep or a margarita.

Anyone like to join me?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Gorgeous shots. Hemingway’s house always makes me wish I were there. I was on my way to Key West once long ago, got waylaid in Texas!! Never made it to Florida! Karma? Destiny? Luck?

        1. Well I have never been to Hawaii though I was tempted to until I found out how much the flight was – I guess you need to look into the temperatures and see which is more favourable. Nice to have that choice though 😀
