More than two thousand people visited Kennaway House for Sidmouth’s Daffodil Day, on Saturday, March 7.
Among the attractions were stalls selling a wide variety of plants and talks by Nick Bailey from Gardeners' World and Lady Christine Skelmersdale, an acknowledged daffodil expert. Visitors were able to take a ride to daffodil sites around the town in the vintage charabanc known affectionately as the Sidmouth Toastrack.
There was also an art exhibition and a display of 168 pictures painted by local schoolchildren.
The event is organised by the Sidmouth Daffodil Society and was created to promote Sidmouth as a destination for flower lovers and support the Million Bulbs programme undertaken by the Keith Owen Fund.
All proceeds go towards further daffodil planting around the Sid Valley.
