An impressive range of freshly cut flowers were on display Friday and Saturday as part of the Echuca Horticultural Society’s autumn show.
St Mary’s Parish Echuca hosted the show and its hall was filled with bright colour, fresh fruit and flowers in bloom.
The show has run for more than a century and this year there were more entries than ever before.
Entrants arrived from all over the state, including guests from Shepparton, Bendigo and Numurkah.
Val Evans was awarded the Class A first prize and Victorian Rose Society medallion and Cecilia Merrigan took home the Royal Victorian Horticultural Society medallion.
Two of the entrants had also placed second in the International Flower and Garden Show in Melbourne recently.
Show steward Alma Reynolds said the show proved colourful.
‘‘We have lots of roses and many orchids,’’ she said.
