Baskets and tubs of flowers have been set up on Morpeth's streets
A flood-hit town in Northumberland has fought back to win a gold medal for its floral excellence.
In September 2008 the River Wansbeck burst its banks, affecting more than 1,000 properties in Morpeth.
Hundreds of people had to be rescued from their homes after the area experienced one month's average rainfall in just 12 hours.
Morpeth was awarded Gold and the title of Best Town in the Northumbria in Bloom Awards 2009.
Hundreds of baskets and tubs sponsored by local businesses were installed on the town's streets.
Eileen Burn, Northumbria in Bloom chairman, said: "It's wonderful to see how Morpeth and other flood affected areas fought back after the disaster of last year back to blossom again with such enthusiasm."
