Floral festivities are at Walpole thanks to 60 arrangers who have created more than 50 displays inside the village church using more than 5,000 blooms.
Churchwarden Michael Anstey said: “It’s an absolutely wonderful sight inside the church at the moment.
“This year, we’ve purposely not included display cards so visitors can use their own imagination to interpret the arrangements, The approach has been quite effective.”
Local artists have also been working on paintings and demonstrating willow weaving.
While many of the flowers are brought in from Europe, a lot on display are also grown locally.
As well as the beautiful arrangements inside the church, there are stalls outside selling cakes, preserves, flowers and produce.
The Walpole St Peter Flower Festival started on Saturday, and included a fun dog show from midday.

Mr Anstey said: “Over the last couple of days, the wind was a bit strong for the marquees.
“But the weather is meant to be stunning for the final day. We’re really hoping the forecast is accurate.”
