What a lovely greenhouse. I see it needs some repair work done to it. Is there no money for it?

Nora: the rest of the house is also under restoration... so maybe this will be next?

I love the greenhouse and what a great shot! Hope it gets the repairs that it needs, much to pretty to lose!! Have a lovely week!

I have never been into Spadina House - this is a lovely green house. I will have to walk over for a tour 1 day.

I always love the contents of greenhouses -- but this is one where the building itself is wonderful. Thanks for showing it.

I do like the look of this greenhouse. I want to go inside and take a deep whiff of the damp earth. Mmmm.

That's a splendid old glasshouse. Glasshouses are very reassuring, somehow.

It is a lovely greenhouse and I do want to walk up the pathway and go inside to see the flowers.

They just don't make greenhouses this handsome any more, do they?

[After reading all the comments I realize the message of my sign is not so obvious. It's a poop and scoop reminder, with notice that there's a Euro 36 fine for failure to do so. :-D ]
