Planters placed around a north Norfolk village by four residents have been branded "blooming marvellous".
And visitors will soon have a chance to stop and smell the flowers thanks to a planned village yard sale, which will benefit a 'Brighten Up Binham' fund.
Janet Hewitt said she, husband Stanley and fellow Binham residents Liz and Allen Brown joined forces for the planters project.
She said: "We thought it would be something nice to brighten things up after the difficult year that everyone has had.
"A local businessman donated some reclaimed wood and Stanley made up the boxes. Between the four of use we planted them all up.
"We asked for donations and got near £200 for to pay for things like nails, screws and compost.
"Everybody has said how lovely they look. People seem really pleased that they are there."
