Blossoming gardens opened their gates at Thetford Open Gardens.
Now in its 13th year, an assortment of 33 gardens were open to the public in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care on Sunday.
Proceeds were raised by a £5 programme which was available before the event and included descriptions written by each garden owner.
Most gardens took a twist on the usual proceedings.

Rachel Wood, 67, said: "It's not Chelsea gardens, it's homeowner's gardens. People are inspired not intimidated."
One such garden, for example, enticed onlookers with cocktail and cake.
While another gardener had installed a bee hive in her backyard, and was selling honey for the hospice.
Even potential bad weather wasn't a problem, as one of the gardens was made entirely from knitted wool.
One of the highlights was a gardener who proved that size didn't matter. Offering his display as a series of potted plants, he didn't let his small garden dampen his efforts.
