Visitors came from far and wide to wonder at the spectacle that was the 2019 Augusta Spring Show, arriving last weekend from Perth and as far away as Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania.
According to event spokesperson Wendy Shearwood, attendees were greatly impressed by the quality of this year's show, as were the horticultural judges.
As well as the region's brightest blooms and heartiest vegies, the show also displayed mouthwatering cakes, jams and preserves, splendid quilts, fine needlework and eye-catching knitted and crocheted items.
"The town's photographers produced a great display and the woodwork and metalwork sections were just mind-blowing," said Mrs Shearwood.
"The Augusta and Karridale Primary Schools put on fabulous displays - a real tribute to the great teaching staff at these schools.
"And the kitchen volunteers worked the whole weekend keeping everyone supplied with home made goodies - so it really was a feast in all senses of the word!"
Augusta gardening guru Steve Wood agreed that the show produced some of the region's best efforts.
"The quality and presentation of exhibits at this year's Augusta Spring Show was once again absolutely outstanding," Mr Wood said.
"The horticultural section boasted magnificent roses, gerberas, pelargoniums, orchids, potted plants, fruit and vegetables and a huge range of beautiful cut flowers that would rival any show in the world.
"It's so wonderful that the Show provides a platform for everyone to share their passion. Combined with our natural occurring native flora this truly is a gardener's paradise. Well done Augusta!"
