Garden At Spadina House

Spadina House is a restored historic manor located beside Casa Loma and which is now a museum. Part of the museum is its 6 acre garden which includes an orchard, sweeping lawns, and this wonderful Victorian garden. The garden contains more than 300 species of flowers and vegetables which are all interspersed with pathways running through it. This is a view of the back of the manor house, taken a few weeks ago.

Close to paradise, if you're carrying a camera.

Wonderful looking gardens with this fancy house. Probably takes a troop of gardeners to keep this looking good.

This surely is an incredible landscape surrounding what I'm sure is quite a lovely interior too!

A beautiful place. I don't think I've ever been inside, unless visiting Casa Loma as a child.

Looks wonderful! We lived two doors down from on Castleview in 1974-5, but it wasn't open to the public yet then.
