Organisers of this year's Garden of Cosmic Speculation say they have had an unprecedented number of visitors.
Thousands of people packed into the garden at Portrack, near Holywood, on the outskirts of Dumfries.
The garden was created by local landscape artist and architect Charles Jencks, who takes inspiration from the universe.
The garden is divided into 40 different areas featuring mounds, water features and installations.
The huge number of visitors meant there were some long delays for people trying to exit and enter the car parks. Police Scotland asked people to avoid the main A76 route due to the volume of traffic backed up onto the main road.
Organiser's said they were sorry for any delays and thanked the public for their continued support.
Funds raised from the open day are donated to Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres- the charity set-up in memory of Jencks' late wife.
The futuristic garden attracted people from as far away as New Zealand and Canada.
Plans are already underway for next year's event, with details published by Scotland's Gardens at the end of 2017.
