And Yet I Find You Planting Here…..

“Tis time to plant them now,” he said,
“If they shall bloom in Spring”;
“But every bulb,” said I, “seems dead,
And such an ugly thing.”

Edgar Guest 1881 – 1959

Saturday, 28th October dawned cloudy, but dry for the bulb planting sponsored by the Livingston Rotary Club.  A good contingent of Rotarion’s turned up to to plant the contents of a huge box of bulbs in the station area and the cutting between the two tunnels.  At one point the car park looked decidedly full.

Our thanks go Livingston Rotary Club and to all those who turned out to help.  We look forward to seeing their efforts rewarded by a colourful display in the spring.

 

The Sequel……

The efforts of the Livingston Rotary Club planting hundreds of Crocus bulbs to brighten the site in Springtime has been well rewarded as our Roving Reporter discovered when they were at Almondell enjoying the Spring sunshine and warm temperatures after the ‘Beast from the East’ had retreated.  Grabbing the trusted camera, these pictures say it all.

Crocuses are never ones to shy away from the sunshine……
