A couple have celebrated their engagement after using Welcome To Yorkshire's garden, at this year's Chelsea Flower Show, as the setting for the proposal yesterday.
"Congratulations to Adam and Rosemary who just got engaged on the @Welcome2Yorks garden! She said yes!"
It crowned a magnificent day for the tourism board's garden, which received a highly coveted Gold Medal from the RHS organisers.
Bosses said it was "a fitting celebration, as the tourism organisation celebrates its tenth anniversary and tenth garden at the world-famous flower show".
The garden is inspired by Yorkshire’s proud industrial heritage and stunning natural environment.
The centrepoint is an authentically built canal, with flowing water and genuine lock gates. The garden also includes a towpath and a lock keeper’s lodge with a colourful garden and vegetable patch.
The display is made up of over 70 varieties of daffodils and 2,000 flowers of all colours, shapes and sizes.
“The question we are asked the most is how we get them all to flower at the same time. “The lack of sun in early May initially caused slow emergence. What started out as a slow process accelerated rapidly, once the fine, bright weather returned, turning the picking of the flowers into an endurance event!”
The company's director, Adam Taylor, added: “We are absolutely delighted in achieving a gold medal at Chelsea in our centenary year.”
