A flower arranging workshop celebrating the ever-popular hydrangea - one of summer's undisputed star performers - saw Combe St Nicholas Village Hall filled with colour.
Local ladies learnt how to condition and care for their flowers then watched their tutor creating a floral ring using spectacular colour combinations. Then it was their turn to have a go making a fabulous design perfect for either al fresco entertaining or their dining room tables.
One of the participants, Julia Yates from Axminster said: "I was extremely pleased with my design. I learnt how to make the best out of different colour hydrangea heads and how to condition them. Another great morning!"
Award-winning Somerset tutor Jackie Nicholls from Ashville design who teaches the workshops said: "With their spectacular showy blooms, these stunning hydrangeas were the perfect flowers for this arrangement. The village hall was filled with a dazzling selection of blooms ensuring everyone was spoilt for choice. This was a relatively simple design - but with outstanding results. Huge congratulations to everyone from me."
