A curled cucumber lizard complete with a carrot tongue and cherry tomato eyes won top prize in one of the sections at the 27th Winton and District Horticultural Society Autumn Flower Show.

The inventive creation was one of many among several categories including flowers, roses, vegetables, floral art, photography, baking, preserving, handcrafts, and a children's section.

Winton Horticultural Society president Forbes Adcock said the show, which is being held at the Winton War Memorial Hall, attracted thousands of entries, which was "quite heartening".

Raffles and displays of jewellery, wooden toys and patchwork were also on show.

The flower show will be open to the public today from 9am till 4pm and costs $3. Prizegiving and presentation of trophies will be held at 3.30pm.
