BY BRUCE ZIMMERMAN

The St. Catharines (Garden City) Horticultural Society held its Prime Time Garden Tour.  There were eight private gardens on each tour.  The pictures below are just a few of the numerous great sights I saw.  I know all of you will have seen many other beautiful sights but I can not put them all up here.  Remember to get your photographs in for the Photo Contest.
