"Exuberant" vegetables including spherical carrots and summer flowers were just a few highlights of the Muswell Hill Horticultural Society's summer show.

Held on Saturday, the annual show saw about 100 people enjoy the blazing sunshine, hydrangeas, roses and lilies at North Bank House, in Page’s Lane, Muswell Hill.

Show secretary Jane Bywaters said: “The glorious weather was a very good thing. There was a very English, warm atmosphere with contentment in the air.

“There were also very good home made cakes and tea,” Jane added.

Winners included society president Gary Sycamore, Jenny Kruss, who won the first Harper Cup award for her cookery exhibit, and Yvonne Heath.

The trophies were presented by Hornsey and Wood Green MP and festival favourite Catherine West.

And turning heads were Susan Chaitow’s globe carrots.

“Sometimes we grow more exotic veg,” Jane explained.
