Take some time to smell the roses: Slideshow included

It was a day to stop and smell the gardens.

Seven homes featured in the 2013 Genesee County Master Gardener's Gardening Tour.

Organizers say they search year-round, looking for beautiful back yards to tour.

"It's so relaxing for me going on one of these garden tours is better than a back rub i just feel relaxed wlaking through people's yards and looking at their ideas you just get ideas for your own yard," said organizer, Kay McCullough.

Many of the gardeners have been working at their craft for 40 plus years.
