Everything has come up roses again in the Our Clackmannanshire in Bloom competition.
The final round of judging took place on Wednesday 10th August.
The Clackmannanshire in Bloom competition is divided into two sections; one for Schools and the other for Community Projects, Allotments and Council Tenants.
The school results were announced in June. This year's independent judge was Jacqueline McKenna, Stirling University's Grounds Maintenance Manager. She judged the Community Projects, Allotments and Council Tenants gardens.

Provost Stewart said: "Our Clackmannanshire in Bloom competition is more than a gardening competition. It celebrates care of the natural environment which helps enhance the quality of life in our neighbourhoods. Clackmannanshire's environment, on which our prosperity partly depends, would not be so attractive were it not for the responsibility local people feel towards our natural environment and the place in which they live. Our Clackmannanshire in Bloom aims to foster that responsibility and promote collective approaches to greener living."
