Colourful flower bouquets for the winner’s of this year’s Tour de Yorkshire were created by florist Dulcie Swinson-Bullough.

Mrs Swinson-Bullough, who lives in Allerton Bywater and runs a flower business in Boston Spa, was asked to make 34 winners’ bouquets.

They were presented to the overall winners of the Tour de Yorkshire after the race ended in Scarborough.

The second Tour de Yorkshire drew spectators to venues around the county after Yorkshire first hosted part of the Tour de France in 2014.

Mrs Swinson-Bullough, who runs Dulcie Butterfly Vintage Tearooms and Florist, on High Street, Boston Spa, said: “They were country-style bouquets with colours to match the tops of the riders.

“It was lovely to be part of it. It’s such a big thing now for Yorkshire and every year it’s going to get bigger.”

More than two million spectators watched the three-day Tour de Yorkshire.

Stage two of the race got underway in Otley before passing through South Milford, Monk Fryston, Knottingley, Pontefract, Badsworth and South Elmsall.
