Tovrea Castle – Part 2

I was always fascinated, even as a child, by antiques and ancient times. I always felt I should have been born in the 17th or 18th century. They really had a big stone castle with authentic furniture. Margaret O’Brien

Tovrea Castle – Part 1

I love fairy tales because of their haunting beauty and magical strangeness. They are set in worlds where anything can happen. Frogs can be kings, a thicket of brambles can hide a castle where a royal court has lain asleep for a hundred years, a boy can outwit a giant, and a girl can break a curse withc nothing but her courage and steadfastness.

Castle Farms – Gardens 

The gardens at Castle Farms are so pretty, whimsical and unique. If you have been to my blog before you know that I have taken way too many photos at Castle Farms!  But, I just couldn’t not share the gardens of this fun place.  For more information check out the Castle Farms website.  

All of the photographs were taken last September in the fall.  If the flowers are so pretty in the fall then I’m sure in the spring they are equally magnificent. 











There is a wonderful dragon nearby in the lake and another watching over the castle …





The large chess pieces are a great photo op … as my cousin found out!  







Some beautiful statues flank the front of the castle surrounded by flowers …











If you are ever in Northern Michigan I highly recommend checking out the gardens and castle!  













And to wrap it up are a few fall trees on the grounds …





Have a great weekend!  Until next time, LAF



Happy Sunday!
