The 163rd Penicuik Autumn Show took place on Saturday, brightening up the town’s Ladywood Leisure Centre.
Kathryn Pitts, president of organisers the Penicuik Horticultural Society, said: “We were very disappointed with the reduced numbers of exhibits and visitors. It seems that there were many shows at the weekend including Dundee and Biggar, and the new bridge walk would have been a once in a lifetime experience.
“That said, we had beautiful dahlias and begonias from our Penicuik regulars and lovely flowers and pot plants in the other sections.
“And our fruit and veg growers brought a wide selection of produce and we even had peaches which were grown in Penicuik.”
Among the prize winners were John Kennedy, Carolyn King, Des Frantom and Janet Macintosh.
