Glorious blooms and giant vegetables delighted visitors to the popular annual Spilsby and district Chrysanthemum Show,
More than 260 exhibits filled Franklin Hall over two days - Friday and Saturday - last week.
As well as the judging of the blooms, there was chrysanthemum floral art, baking, arts and crafts displays, and a special project from Stickney Primary School in which children were challenged to decorate a wooden spoon as a fictional character.
Margaret Simpson, secretary of the society, said it was a “wonderful” show.
In particular, she said the new children’s display proved very popular and a lot of hard work had been put into it.
She said: “The winners of the school project were presented with their trophy in morning assembly after the show so everyone could see how well they had done.
“They did a marvellous job.”
Overall, Margaret said the society was delighted with how the show went. “Especially impressive were the vegetables - we had some giant ones, and we also ran a competition for the heaviest onion,” she said.
“We had a steady flow of visitors too, in spite of the rain on the Saturday.”
One reason for the popularity could be shows such as this are dwindling. “There are now only two shows left in the county - the other one is at Mablethorpe,” said Margaret.
“It’s lack of helpers more than anything. We are just lucky we have so many family members who come together and help us.
