Visitors to an Aberdeen park enjoyed a blooming good show this weekend as green-fingered enthusiasts from across the city and beyond took part in the annual Aberdeen Horticultural Society spring show.
Young and old gardeners competed for prizes in the event held in Duthie Park on Saturday and Sunday.
The trophies were presented by George Anderson of the Beechgrove Garden on Sunday afternoon.
Hazel Main, of the group, said all the entries had been “spectacular”.
She added: “It’s especially nice to see young people taking part and learning about growing plants.
“It’s amazing the amount of kids who think tatties come from the supermarket.”
