An Orchard House

If you turn right around from where I shot yesterday's pic at Spadina House you see the apple orchard and since it is winter you can see the lovely house that is hidden by leaves all summer. I assume it must have been for the groundskeeper or gardener to live in when Spadina House was still used as a home rather than a museum as it is today.

What a great place to live - in a beautiful house surrounded by apple trees. My first thought when I saw this was that I wouldn't be able to see that house in the summertime!

It think it would have been good to be the groundskeeper. That is a very nice house.

I could imagine living there surrounded by apples! It must be pretty in spring with apple blossom

Oh, those trees must be lovely when in full bloom.

This is a beautiful old home. I bet it is gorgeous when the trees are all in bloom though hidden a good bit. I would love to live there but I wouldn’t want the worry of the orchard.

I like your summer/winter info about this great pic.

Nice to see the house through the trees.

What a nice house for the groundskeeper. I can't tell if that is a bench or a couple of chairs by the walkway, but it would make a nice spot to sit and enjoy the orchard in the summertime!

That is quite the house for a gardener!

I am looking forward to when you return for the springtime blossoms. ;))

A lovely place, and even better that it's a museum because one can go inside and see it all!
