A floral fantasia of greeted the many visitors to Caistor Town Hall for Caistor and District Flower Club’s annual show.
And NAFAS judge Lynn Bottamley had the unenviable job of choosing the winners.
“The exhibition is of a very high standard and it has been difficult to choose the winners,” she said.
“Caistor Flower Club can be very proud for putting on such a wonderful show.”
After lunch, National Demonstrator William Dixon from Bolton gave a demonstration entitled “Just William” to a packed hall.
Cup winners were: Catherine Hand Challenge Trophy, Best individual exhibit in show - Caroline Jackson; Pearl Anniversary Trophy, Best exhibit in novice class - Jill Armitage; The Josie Tute Trophy, Best exhibit in craft class - Cecile Povey; Ian Buxton Trophy, Best use of colour in show - Sandra Rossington; Open Class Challenge Trophy, Best use of texture - Julie Hind; Keith Shaw Memorial Trophy, Best use of UK grown garden plant material - Val Wilson; Pat Chamberlain Trophy, Best use of foliage - Cecile Povey.
