Scorching hot weather encouraged visitors to attend an open garden event in Melton.
Couple Richard and Hilary Lawrence, of 119 Scalford Road, welcomed people to their colourful plot which featured a new white border and nearly green lawns, as well as exotic plants and container planting.
Mrs Lawrence said: “We had 52 visitors this year who all enjoyed themselves and bought plenty of cakes and plants.
“It was another successful event which raised a similar amount to last year.
“We will definitely be doing it again next year but perhaps in June instead. It’ll be worth visiting because there will be a new decking area.
“The National Garden Scheme has received £700 from us and the rest we have donated to charity Fight for Sight, as our daughter is registered blind.”
