The Perfect Potluck

July 12th was the perfect day for the Annual North Toronto Horticultural Society Garden Tour and Potluck Picnic. The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing, the setting was lovely and the food was delicious. A special thank you goes out to our gracious hosts Andy McCraw (the guy who pulls the weeds) and Mary Audia (gardener extraordinaire!) Here are a few photos featuring highlights of this wonderful evening.
