Spindletree Gardens - Frank Kershaw Tour with Toronto Botanical Gardens

Hi everyone,
I want to make sure you are aware of a special opportunity to get to see this private garden open to the public with a great tour leader.  Frank Kershaw is leading a tour to Spindletree Gardens on July 10th.  Tom Brown and Sue Meisner are the garden creators and owners and will give a tour of the gardens.  The gardens are located north of Kingston in Tamworth.  This makes it worth hopping onto a bus tour and having someone else drive.  The bus leaves TBG at 8:00am in the morning and arrives back around 6:30pm.  

This is a one-of-a-kind garden.  It is very large with 20 acres of gardens.  There are many beautiful structures - stone built walls and pretty bridges.  There are historic buildings and structures that have been moved to the site and are now garden focal points.  

This garden is open to the public for tours and there is a tea room for lunch, so it has the amenities of a public garden while being a personal creation.  

I have registered for the tour, as the last time I was there was a few years ago, and many additions have occurred since then.  I am looking forward to seeing the beautiful structures and gardens.

Here's the link at TBG:

Please consider joining us on this tour and having some fun with us.
