Flora, fauna and other fine things

I almost passed right by this orchid trained to grow out of the tree. After that, I began to pay more attention and found this same treatment in numerous yards located in Key West.





The tropical color was just breathtaking.

It is almost a requirement that all tourists visit the home of Pulitzer and Noble prize winning author Ernest Hemingway. This is the second story view from his home.
There were several lovely Venetian chandeliers in the home, this one was my favorite.

Sculptures in the marbled master bath.


Art Deco era tiles in the downstairs bath.

Archibald Macleish, one of the many six toed descendants of Hemingway's cat that freely roam the property.

Only 90 miles to Cuba and 90 minutes to brush out the wind blown hair.
