Sorry, I couldn't make it in time for the talk.
Any chance that the Early Bulb Talks might get "zoomed"?
cheers

I was hoping to go to the Early Bulb Day tomorrow but I see that the majority of trains from Edinburgh to Dunblane have been cancelled.  It looks as if you might be able to go to Stirling and change but I don't feel confident about trying to do that.  Does anyone know more?

Edit:  I've been able to answer my own question:

Quote
A fault with the signalling system between Stirling and Dunblane is causing disruption to journeys running to and from these stations.

To help with your journey, rail replacement buses are running between Stirling and Dunblane, calling at Bridge of Allan.

And today the rail from Edinburgh to Dunblane service is shown as running!  I'm going to take the chance that this is true.

I made it to the show exactly as scheduled.  But I met a lady on the train who had seen the same cancellation notice that I did on the previous day so I'm not totally mad.  It was an excellent day and the hall seemed full (but I did not take any photos).

A most enjoyable day all  round. First the display of bulbs  and some other plants. Being non  competitive  means that plants  are brought in that might  not make a conventional show bench leading to more variety. Some pics soft  due to over reliance on the auto focus.
