Britain in Bloom judges have been casting their eye over two East Anglian towns who are hopeful of success in this year's contest.
At Hunstanton, they met plot holders at the Northfield Allotments, where keen growers were busy tending their gardens.
Plot manager Derek Cosbey said: 'It all went very, very well. They were very impressed. One of the judges said it all looked very neat and tidy.'
They also toured the resort's glorious Heritage Gardens, which underwent a £1.3m revamp funded by the lottery and West Norfolk council two years ago.
At Brandon, judges were taking on a route of 11 areas looked after and maintained by volunteer horticultural group Brandon In Bloom.
