Could you take a blooming lovely picture?
GET your green fingers on a camera to enter a competition to find some blooming lovely photographs.
Grimsby In Bloom has launched its annual photography competition to find some great images of the best outdoor spots in North East Lincolnshire.
This year's theme is Horticulture and Gardening in North East Lincolnshire, and organiser Trevor Harrison is hoping that it will be even more popular than previous years.
Committee member Mr Harrison, 64, said: "Not everyone is a gardener, but anyone can take a photo if they see something nice – even small children.

"There are some beautiful spots in North East Lincolnshire and we want people to get out there and capture them so they can be shared with others.
"It is a chance for us as a group to bridge the gap between the people who are into gardening and the rest of the public."
This year, Freshney Place has sponsored the prizes and provided shopping centre vouchers worth £30, £20 and £15 for first, second and third place.
A short list of entries will be displayed in the shopping centre on Wednesday, September 26 and Thursday, September 27, and the public can vote for their favourite.
Mr Harrison added: "They don't have to be professional shots – sometimes very simple photos work really well.
"Last year, one of the winners was a basic picture of a wooden hut in an allotment – and it looked lovely.
"We like the idea that the public will get to decide on the best photo and that they will be on display for all to see.
"It's a great place to display photos."
The winner will be announced at the beginning of October and presented with a trophy at the Grimsby In Bloom award ceremony at Grimsby Town Hall, later that month.
If you want to enter, all you have to do is take a photo and submit it by Saturday, September 22.
The picture must have a title and location, relate to gardening or horticulture and be taken within North East Lincolnshire.
The competition is open to all ages but entrants are limited to one entry per person.
You can submit your In Bloom photograph by visiting www.grimsbyinbloom.co.uk or by sending an A4-sized print to 231 Chelmsford Avenue, Grimsby, DN34 5BY.
