The Delgany and District annual daffodil show took place on Saturday, April 6, in the Old School House in Delgany.

A wide variety of daffodil species were exhibited, all of which were lovingly grown in preparation for the show.

A spokesperson for the event said that it was a great success, as daffodils appear in nearly every garden and are one of the most popular garden plants. They signal the end of winter, she said, and create a welcome splash of colour in any garden.

There was a variety of other plant species on display during the afternoon.

Exhibitors were on hand so for green-fingered visitors it was a perfect opportunity to ask the experts come questions.

The show also featured the popular floral art exhibition.

There were competition titles ranging from beginners to experts. In addition there was a junior class with the inspirational title 'Spring Surprises'. Other class titles included 'Something Wonderful Has Sprouted'. and 'Take Time to Smell the Flowers'.

Visitors to the show enjoyed the wonderful display of flowers, as well as a cup of tea and a chat.
