Week 4 June 5th to 12th

This week was full of rain.  It was tough to keep up with the weeding and pictures.  The Oshawa Peony festival started June 12th and I brought a few peonies to the show.  I again won a few ribbons, but it was for flowers that I had picked and put in the fridge.  Saturday was very busy, but there was some time to help out on Sunday at the show.  Glad I was inside, because it rained Sunday afternoon.  It was fun to share stories with other gardeners. 
There was a lot that happened during the week.

June 5th brought Chocolate Soldier, Red Grace, Coral Sunset, Garden Treasure, and Flame.

June 11th I spent the day weeding.  It was the only day without rain.  I did not even look around.  June 12th was too busy with the Oshawa Peony Festival and the family BBQ.
Next week has many more peonies to see.
This week had seven new plants to the garden and one that has been here for two years and bloomed for the first time.  Hope that you had time to visit a peony garden near you.
