Loads of visitors enjoyed a ride on a carriage pulled by a tractor to see and appreciate a mile-long country lane, framed by thousands of daffodils, which return each year at Honing.
The annual event draws visitors to support the 20-year-old spectacle.
There has only been one occasion when the daffodils were late and did not blossom in time for the long established event when the clergy stepped in by way of the former vicar, the Revd Barry Furness prayed and blessed the bulbs.
This year's fun was accompanied by tombola and refreshments in the village hall while visitors enjoyed the tractor rides along the 'Daffodil Lane', during a warm, sunny day.
There was a display of 'panoramic photos', from the tower, the first since recent church renovations and visitors had questions answered by church supporters. Great fun was had by families with £927 in proceeds raised for the 'Honing Church Fabric Fund'.
Event organiser Diana Howes said: 'The day turned out to be fantastic, and everyone enjoyed themselves.'
