Members of Campbeltown Flower Club put their green fingers to the test as they put on a blooming marvellous display of the things they love most.
At a coffee morning in the Red Cross hall last Saturday, which raised £435, each member constructed a floral display representing their favourite thing.
Topics ranged from handbags, candles and knitting to whisky, line dancing and Winston Churchill, and all were beautifully arranged.
Each table in the hall was complete with its own colourful centre-piece, and as the tea and coffee flowed, everyone appreciated the floral exhibits around the room.
