The Southport Flower Show was opened by celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott this morning (18 August).
Thousands of visitors attended the annual floral event at the resort's Victoria Park. It's being promoted as the largest independent flower show in the country.
TV gardener Carol Klein was also on hand to answer questions.
Fantastic displays as usual.
Flamenco dancer in action.
Jonathan Marshall with his falcons presented a brilliant display.
There are always a few clowns about as well.
No show is complete without old Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
The weather was kind and everyone seemed to have an enjoyable day.
