FOAKES Hall was filled with floral fragrances as Dunmow Horticultural Society held its Spring show on Saturday.
David Beedle, chairman of Dunmow Horticultural Society, said: "Our show was rather late this year, which meant there was a drastic shortfall on the daffodil entries in the main classes but that didn't stop the hall from looking splendid.
"It was pleasing to see people had turned their hand to other things and the number of entries in the floral art categories increased."
In the flower arranging there was a bit of sibling rivalry between Glynis Smith and her sister Deborah. Glynis took the Lidbury Cup by one point.
