GREEN-FINGERED enthusiasts enjoyed blooming marvellous displays as part of an annual open gardens event.
Wirksworth and Bonsall residents preened their florals and mowed their lawns for the celebration on Saturday and Sunday, which raises funds for charity.
The event has become a must for garden lovers and those of us who just like to relax and drink tea and biscuits in beautiful settings.
Visitors had a chance to explore hidden green spaces and courtyards.
A wide range of gardens were open from the large show gardens of Orchard House, in Wirksworth, and The Cascades and Herbert Lodge, in Bonsall, to much more modest courtyards.
Several gardens were selling plants and refreshments and live music took place.
In Wirksworth, the event raised money for Waltham House care centre, Amnesty International and Study Guatemala, a local charity supporting education for children in Guatemala City.
Money raised at Bonsall’s event will help fund improvements around the village.
