A step back in time… In Tucson’s historic district, Transformed Sonoran architecture from the late 1800’s – early 1900’s reflects the simplicity of adobe block walls, flat roofs along with sloping metal roofs. Nearby telephone lines create a dance of linear shadow patterns and geometric spaces across the upper walls. This little bit of history is spruced up for today, as a contemporary owner has embellished this “touch of yesterday” by adding so often-seen, vivid, periwinkle blue trim, white plantation shutters inside, decorative iron gate leading to a quiet, tiny patio energized with scarlet red geraniums and outside a traditional, hand-painted, talavera pot overflowing with more scarlet geraniums. Fascinating neighborhoods to explore and flourishing again today.
