The cold spring failed to deter green fingered pelargonium fans when they displayed their efforts at Gardener's Hall in Windsor.
It was the Windsor and Slough Chrysanthemum, Fuchsia and Pelargonium Society's annual pelargonium show, held at the hall in St Leonard's Road, Windsor on Sunday, June 16.
There were 13 exhibitors and the 76 exhibits.
The Deputy Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr John Lenton and Deputy Mayoress Margaret Lenton gave out the prizes.
Peter Waving won the Queen Elizabeth II Cup, the Brenda Rose Cup and the Headington Cup for best in show.
Society vice-president Bob Clarke won the Mrs Robinson Memorial Cup and the PAGS Silver Spoon for best exhibitor in two classes. Liz Gray, Ted Lone and Graham Talbot also won cups.
The society meets on the first Tuesday of every month at Gardener's Hall at 8pm and welcomes new members.
The fuchsia show happens on August 10 at 2pm. There will be 30 classes, also including gladioli, pinks and pot plants.
