PRIME TIME GARDEN
 TOUR - PAGE 2

 

BY BRUCE ZIMMERMAN

The St. Catharines (Garden City) Horticultural Society held its Annual 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.

I would like thank all the volunteers and garden owners who made it a great afternoon for all of us. 
I hope that these pictures will encourage you to put your little corner of paradise on your local garden tour.
