OVBG & Ontario Peony Show Day 2

We arrived early and collected the required necessities for the CPS booth outside.  It was a windy day so everything outside needed a paperweight or someone to hold them down during big gusts.
We had 3 buckets of cut blooms from the flower show to start with and a few from the Denny's garden. Blooms were being sold for $2 each.  We also had seeds from yesterday which were being sold for $2 a packet.

Before being completely set up people were already going through the gardens and stopping by the booth to ask questions or buy seeds.

There were 100's of people visiting today and we were so busy that we had to eat and talk at the same time, several times Brian and I alternated taking bites of a sandwich and talking.  We had a few people who had been watching us and gave us a few moments to finish our lunch. (which we ate at 1:30pm)  The day was pleasant the weather at times required a light jacket and the people were fantastic.

Brian was asking the men who were walking buy "When was the last time you bought your wife/girlfriend a flower" and this sold a few of the cut blooms and it also had a few men wincing and walking away.  At the end of the day we had two buckets of blooms left and almost sold out of seeds.  We were also excited to have 3 new members sign up on the spot.

We enjoy being apart of this show very much and would recommend volunteering for a few hours or if your not up for that pop in, say hi and see the blooms, they really are a treat to behold.
