The village of Filby has shown off its floral merits to Britain In Bloom judges Jon Wheatley and Teresa Potter.
At Filby Primary School they were greeted by pupils and parents, who were pleased to give up part of their holidays to show off their horticultural prowess.
The judges then meet further pupils and parents at the Clay Pits, derelict ponds reclaimed by Filby's In Bloomers and a team of parents to be used as a teaching aid.
During their tour, accompanied by Filby in Bloom's chairman Adrian Thompson and press officer, Derek Nicker, they met Norfolk Wildlife Trust's Trinity Broads warden Eilish Rothney, Filby Bridge Restaurant's head chef Richard Barnes and In Bloomers Gwen Thurtle, Mervyn Gibson, Sandra Woolsey and Caroline Nicker who were happy to talk about their special projects.
Britain in Bloom winners will be announced on October 27.
