There was a scent of Chelsea during the Dersingham open gardens weekend over the bank holiday.

The two-day show featured some wonderful gardens and an art studio trail as villagers showcased their outside talents.

Big and small gardens, ornate gardens, gardens with water, gardens with a big lawn, gardens with no lawn, garden statues, windmills and gnomes were all available to visitors. More than a dozen gardens were on show with head gardeners on hand to chat about their plants, lawns, ponds and the weather.

Some of the gardens formed part of the Dersingham art trail, allowing visitors to pop into a few art studios, chat to the artists and study their work.

The public had the opportunity to meet some new and some old familiar friends, while stalls offered craftwork, plants, delicious foods and even wine.
