After months of fiercely fought competition, the winners have been announced and now the flowers are slowly turning to seed to be enjoyed by the birds in the Autumn.

All those who competed and posted comments in the Sunflower Diary and on Twitter helped to brighten up the village this Summer. They entertained everybody with their successes and shared their frustration when their carefully nurtured plants were eaten by cows, dogs, slugs, snails and unidentified bugs. Even a hollyhock joined in, competing with the sunflowers to reach dizzying heights. Congratulations to everybody who was involved in any way.

Enjoy the photos of some of the stars of the show and then watch out for next year's competition to be announced in the Spring.
