People of all ages have been enjoying a feast of floral creativity which is on show at Peckover House for the National Trust’s flower festival.
The festival, which kicked off on Saturday and runs until tomorrow, is inspired by the work and loves of the Peckover family.
Coordinator Ann Purt and a team of experienced and skilled flower arrangers have applied their imagination to create pieces that flow from the house into the gardens and outhouses.
This year’s theme reflects the many and varied interests of the Peckovers, their work, beliefs and hobbies.
Peckover House secretary Paula Arnold said: “You can’t help but be impressed by the flowers when you walk into the house. “There has been an increase in visitors over the weekend with people coming to see the colours and imagination on show.

The festival, called Peckovers: Reflections of the Family, is open today and tomorrow from noon to 6pm.
