“RURAL GARDEN TOUR”

We produced this show just before the Pandemic hit. Now with Canada closed we must enjoy it from afar by watching our video. Ontario is known for its incredible gardens and it is spring so we thought we would bring out one of our favorite pastimes – Yes, Gardening! (Next to Hiking of course)
