ALTHOUGH the weather hasn’t been ideal for growing flowers or fresh produce, there was still a large entry of high standard exhibits at last weekend’s Cockburnspath Flower Show.

The event itself was blessed with fine weather meaning there was a good turnout of spectators at the village hall on Saturday.
