Oshawa Peony Festival

Tuffy P posting today. I took a drive out to Oshawa this afternoon to take in the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens and the 13th Annual Oshawa Peony Festival.  Indoors, the judges tables fill half a hockey rink with seemingly every variety of peony. Outdoors, the peony blooms are just as mind blowing. Over 300 varieties are established in the Botanical Garden. The Matsuyama Bonsai show was also on display in the arena.  Members of the Canadian Peony Society and the Matsuyama Bonsai Society were on hand to answer questions.

On the grounds, how I walked away without buying a table of homemade strudel – I still don’t know!  Food, drinks, a great jazz band and all kinds of crafty vendors spilled out along the grounds of the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens.

Well worth the trip! The show runs  tomorrow  – Sunday June 11th from 10-4pm.  Hit the road early – and don’t leave without some homemade strudel!
