Isle of Man Flower Festival 2015 has got off to a good start with many visitors already calling in to see displays at the 17 venues around the island.
The festival got underway on Sunday and runs until this Saturday.
Flower Festival committee chairman Judy Matthews said: ‘Lots of people have already passed through the doors of the venues and we have had a lot of positive feedback.
‘The bad weather at the start of this week may have put a bit of a damper on Tynwald Day, but it certainly hasn’t stopped people visiting Flower Festival venues.’
Judy added: ‘A big thank you to all of our volunteers and organisers who have helped the festival get off to such a good start.’
The festival also features a photographic competition, open to digital entries. Pictures must have been taken in one of the venues.
