This book is growing

In the beginning, there was Steve and a tractor. 

Then Steve met Alys and they met John

Who brought along Isobel and an idea was hatched.

Shortly after people pledged, ideas became words and then pictures and more ideas 

Seed was sown, things grew, 

But Alys got lost.


Luck brought Lucy,

Who wanted a garden, but got a book in the bargain.

Lucy brought Ian, who has a lovely way with pages and together 

they drew up a plan, made marks on a map 

and now we are six (and half a million or so bees)

And have the beginning of a beautiful book. . .
