Melbourn’s fifth biannual Winter Flower Festival made a welcoming respite from the numbness of the bleak winter weather outside.
Villagers created blooming brilliant flower displays at All Saints’ Church at the two day festival over the course of the weekend.
Organiser Rebecca Gatward, who flew over from her US home in Michigan to attend the event, created a fantastic piece of poppy artwork in homage to the First World War Christmas truce.
She said: “We work as a team, and have nurtured the festival until it’s blossomed into something that is now seriously recognised across the area.”
The festival began 10 years and has grown each year, becoming a firm favourite of flower fans.
