BLOOMING bulbs were on display at Saffron Walden Horticultural Society's Spring Daffodil Show on Saturday.

The event was held at St Mary's School and Robin Crouchman won the Adams Harrison Cup for most points in show.

Societys secretary, Collette Biggs, said the show was a success, despite the number of entrants being slightly down on last year.

She said: "As always, all the exhibits were of a very high quality and the display of flowers and other produce was magnificent.

"Entry numbers were very slightly down on last year but this was probably due to the early spring, and many of the daffodils had reached their flowering peak too early.

"As the name of the show suggests, daffodils were the predominant exhibits but there were other seasonal garden flowers including wallflowers, tulips and primulas, as well as flowering shrubs and houseplants."

There was also a domestic section, with prizes awarded for homemade food and drink, and junior classes.

The society's Summer Rose Show will be held on June 23, also at St Mary's School.
