Spring may officially not have started until Wednesday but it arrived a little early in the village.

Yatton Horticultural Society’s spring show is always a popular event and this year proved to be no different.

Green-fingered villagers seem to specialise in fantastic daffodils but there was a whole lot more on offer to visitors too.

The produce classes received a bumper crop of entries, with Stephen Thorne’s prize-winning leeks a sign of the quality on show.

Judges were impressed by Daisy Smith’s Victoria delicious-looking sandwich cake, while a number of children entered the art categories – including the best-dressed Mr or Mrs Potato Head.
