Lush Annex


I love the entrance to this large home in the Annex area - every spare inch of the property has lovely plantings resulting in this lush, inviting scene. Even on a hot day like this (30˚C) it is refreshing!

I love those trees, it's as if you had draped the greenery on it like you would icicles on a Christmas tree,,,M

I suspect that the people who can own this property can afford a gardener! :)

What a gorgeous entrance Red and you are right greenery does make such a difference as to how hot you feel even if it's just a physiological thing!!

Lovely garden but that ivy can do a lot of damage to the brickwork!

This is lovely!
Where is the "Annex" exactly?

La Principessa Errante said...

Gorgeous, wonder how old the house it.

RedPat said...

The Annex is north of Bloor to Dupont, from Avenue Rd to Bathurst - basically just north of U of T.
This house was built in 1906.

I like the neighbourhood. I think one day I will have to explore the area!

There's a lot of hard labour behind that end product, that's for sure!
