Mullion Horticultural Society's annual Garden Safari took place on a gloriously sunny afternoon, with five gardens open to the public.

All were in the centre of the village and an easy walk for visitors.

Four private gardens of different sizes delighted a large crowd throughout the afternoon, while the school garden demonstrated the range of produce and flowers grown by groups of children from the primary school.

Afterwards visitors were able to head to the home of Rosemary Bray, where around 100 cream teas were served, plants were sold and a raffle was drawn.

Society chairman Pauline Rowse thanked all the garden owners, Rosemary and her helpers in the kitchen, together with all who had helped to make the day such a success.

More than £940 was raised towards the staging of Mullion's Horticultural Show, which takes place on the cricket ground today, Wednesday (July 9).
