Green-fingered members of Accrington Bonsai Society proved small really is beautiful – with their latest stunning display.
Members held a winter tree competition, where they were challenged to put on a show of eye-catching winter plants.
And they certainly rose to the challenge as these beautiful pictures prove.
Standards were so high that the judges awarded a joint top prize to a white pine owned by Noma Catterall and a loncera pileate and Chinese juniper owed by Steve Whiteside.
Acting chairman Raymond Garrett said: "The event was a great success and it is something we will carry on doing. We had 20 trees and the standard all-round was excellent.
"We always have a summer show and a spring one, so we thought it would be nice to have a winter one as well and everyone enjoyed it."
The society is currently on the look-out for new members.
Raymond said: "We are a very friendly group and we used to have a base up at Oswaldtwistle Mills, although now we do things in garden centres.
"We have had a lot of uptake and interest and we’ve got people to do demonstrations.
"We meet at Hippings Vale Community Centre which is wheelchair-friendly and we have guest speakers who come and do displays.
"You can meet friends, swap tips and bring in your own trees to work on. Doing bonsai is very versatile as you can do it with virtually anything."
The club’s next meeting will be on Tuesday, March 8 at The Hippings Vale Community Centre, Oswaldtwistle, starting at 7.30pm.
