These remind me of the homes in Trinidad, where I grew up. I would call them Colonial Victorians…but then, I am not an architect so who knows. I like them, though.

I am not an architect either, so I don’t know if there is a technical distinction, but we do call these “colonials” as well. They are lovely homes, but very labour intensive to maintain as they age.
I don’t know much about Trinidad, other than that there are some beautiful birds there. 🙂
Thanks for your comment.

Beautiful homes! Does a doctor live in the bottom one?

Hmmm. A doctor lives a few doors down – but I don’t know who lives in this one. As a rule, we are not an overly familiar neighbourhood.
Actually, we had a couple move into a house in our street a few years back who had come from the kind of street where they have neighbourhood bbq’s regularly, and street parties on all the holidays. I felt sorry that they had moved here without realising that although the people in our street would help you in an emergency, they are not of the social variety. It’s a bit sad really.

LOL, I was looking at the photo while dh was sitting next to me. I was showing him some of the butterfly and bird photos. Anyway, he recognized it, as he used to deliver the mail in your area. He remembers your lovely girls and their gift of flowers 🙂
Anyway, he wasn’t too sure, but he thought it was the doctor’s house.

😀 He was close! (or maybe right, considering there could be a Dr living there too).
The girls used to look forward to the postie coming. It was such a scramble when they heard him drive up the other side of the street! Even now, the second youngest still thinks that any man riding a motorbike is a postie. When the other girls tell her, “He’s not a postie!”, it’s a bit like the kids who let it out of the bag that Santa isn’t real. 😉
