Third week of blooms May 28 to June 4th

So far it has been dry and a great start.  We are a little early this year.
Sunny Girl opened May 28th.
Then we got rain.
Hillary is new to the garden.  I was surprised that it opened so early.  I can't wait until this plant get more mature.  Hillary opened on June 1.
Mackinac Grand is a lovely red that blooms early.   It also is new to the garden and opened June 1.
June 2nd brought
Unknown tree and
High Noon.  Both are trees.  The unknown red tree is not as good this year.  The rabbits have been eating it during the winter for the past couple of years.  High noon is doing much better since it has been moved.
June 3 brought Lemon Chiffon, Goldilocks, Early Glow, and Dai Jo Kuhan

Goldilocks was lovely this spring.

Dai Jo Kuhan is the unkown pink that came from my Aunt's house.  This plant just blooms and blooms with all of the side buds.
June 4th brought Buckeyed Belle, Dad, and Red Charm.
Buckeyed Belle was a double and a semi double on the same plant.

 Dad is such a large flower.

Red Charm is a show stopper in the garden.
That brings 11 total new blooms that opened this week and 21 different kinds blooming.  
The Oshawa peony is more than a week away, but there is a show in Ottawa on June 6th and 7th.  I am planning to go.

Second Week of Blooms 2015

Athena opened May 24th this year.  The colours were glorious and so many blossoms on the plant.
Fernleaf Double Red-Ruba Flora Plena also opened on May 24th.  Love the fine leaves on this plant.
Ezra Pound has such a wonderful scent. This tree peony is one of my favorites.  Ezra Pound opened on May 25th.
Red Spider has an unusual scent.  It opened May 25th.  The plant is only two years old and is still low to the ground. Lovely looking.

Pastelegance is new to the garden this year, it is such a lovely flower.  The camera again does not capture the beauty of the flower.  There were three blossoms.  The stems were strong enough to hold the flower up. The flower opened on May 27th.
Caroline is also new to the garden. Caroline also opened on May 27th. 
So far the spring has been very dry.  The new peonies are all doing well. We are starting off earlier then last year.  The frost on did not hurt the peonies even the ones that were blooming.  The frost did damage the some of the trees around here.
