The Big Bulb Plant

 After days of heavy rain showers we were fearful that the day of the Big Bulb Plant might be another soggy one.  |However, we were very lucky with the weather and it stayed dry and bright.

The task in hand was to plant one thousand purple crocuses (kindly donated by the Longniddry & District Rotary Club as part of their Focus on the Crocus campaign) along with a further 50 Ruby Giant crocuses, 50 Purple Sensation hyacinths, 50 Remembrance crocuses, 50 Queen of Night tulips and 50 Curly Sue tulips (which were given to us for being one of the first 100 groups to register for the Big Bulb Plant).

Luckily, help was on hand in the form of the 1st Prestonpans Guides, the Rotarians, Friends of Cuthill Park, our MP Fiona O'Donnell, and an assortment of friends and families.

I can't wait to see the blaze of purple next spring!

Thank you everyone for mucking in - you're blooming brilliant!
