Dreadful weather conditions of late proved no match for hardy gardeners who showcased the fruits of their labour at a spring show this week.
Congresbury Gardening Club held its spring flower show at the Old School Rooms.
Congresbury’s green-fingered villagers defied bouts of heavy snowfall to enter top-quality exhibits.
The show’s big winners were Judy Brook and Denise Smith, who claimed two cups each – and Pat Jarvis walked away with the coveted Daffodil Cup.
Chloe Chetland was the star of the children’s categories, winning a pair of prizes.
Show secretary and club chairman Lyn Bacon said: “It went really well.
“We had loads more entries than expected considering the weather.
“The number of children’s entries was up too.
“I’m really pleased, it was a big surprise.
“It was a very good show.”
