It was a gardener’s delight in Elsenham this month as the village’s 2017 flower show got underway.
The village hall was decked out with an array of bright and blossoming plants on August 19, including an impressive collection of vegetables including parsnips, carrots, and courgettes.
The show, which is now in its 32nd year, also saw the return of the Top Vase and Top Tray classes where contestants went head-to-head using flowering stems and their edible produce.
Although the show was held in the middle of the school holidays, youngsters also got the chance to enter, such as Charlie Childerley, who winner the ‘vegimal’ section with his centipede.
There were also handicraft and photography classes which could be entered, and Annie Webb went home with a prize for her winning hand-made bag.
Other winners on the day included youngster Leia Nottage who scooped two prizes, and Alex Lucas who came first in dahlias class.
